On the Limits of Bungee Cords As Cargo Fasteners

You needn't feel sorry for me -- I laughed this off-- but I feel the need to document my day today.

  • 6:50 am departed with car-pool to Girl Weed's school, 45 minutes away. 
  • Wreck on I-95 N, arrived 8:45 am.
  • On the way up, saw that thanks to rubber-necking, traffic headed South was actually backed up worse than the side w/ the actual accident on it -- couldn't even get back on I-95 from the exit. So conducted phone business in the parking lot for a while. 
  • 9:30 departed for office an hour away. 
  • 10:30, less than 10 block from office, a "wide load" truck's cargo strikes a telephone pole, strewing lumber all over the narrow street. 
  • 10:50 arrive office, realize that in carrying many items to car, neglected to bring laptop, on which are all the documents I need for today's project.
  • Arrive for last 10 minutes of morning meeting, boss says go work from home but jokes that I should be careful because there will be more wrecks in front of me. 
  • Five blocks from home, the above happens: fridge falls off the back of a truck in front of me; traffic blocked in both directions as the drivers picked it up and re-tied it.
By the time I got home it was 1:30 pm. I took the dog and went for a walk. It was a beautiful day and clearly the project that was stressing me out such that I HAD to get it done today has no meaning for the Lord whatsoever. I'm at peace.

My only complaint is that if you're going to spend four hours in a car in the morning, you should end up at the beach or the mountains or someplace way cooler than your stupid office without your stupid computer that your stupid self forgot.
