Cool. I head to the laundry room... and the washer is mid-cycle. I go back to my wife, "I thought that your brother said that they were done with their laundry for the week and that the machines were open?"
"Oh, they are, but I'm using it."
"... but you just said that you weren't doing laundry."
"I'm not doing laundry - I'm washing the shower curtain."

Ugh, great googly moogly. :rolleyes:

Sorry, like Mojo31, I have to agree with your wife.

But it seems that we are both attorneys so you should probably disregard us.

For all we know the appointment was scheduled, because the patient has recently started having trouble judging time. That is a thing. I think. I mean 90 percent of the people at the airport demonstrate this very condition everyday.

I may be guilty of this

I'm going to go postal if I ever have to wait for another elitist pilot to make his flight. It's just crazy how bad it is with the flight crews. :troll:

My wife once showed up at security at Logan 5 minutes before her plane started boarding. She somehow managed to be on the plane 5 minutes after boarding began.

Mojo31 07-08-22 08:29 AM

I still recall the good ole days of flying. You'd park your car 30 minutes before your flight, and had plenty of time to get to the gate.

Of course, that was when people were civil.

Mojo31 07-08-22 08:35 AM

Pretty boy kit arrived. A dusty pink sweater would sure be nice for those fall days when there is a chill in the air.

Laundry includes linens, and I would include a fabric shower curtain within that group. Regardless, it's waaay pedantic and ignores the root question being asked.

Wordle 6/6. I blame watching the race while trying to play.

Speaking of the race, that finish-OMG.

Contractually I am required a swedish massage, and a 3 course meal before each flight.

You donít want me flying tense and hungry.

Better, but not well.

I took the day off, since I'm definitely feeling below par. This goes against years of "Suck it up, walk it off!" training that tells me you only stay home if you're actively vomiting or are convinced you're on death's door. My crazy old boss used to brag about the day he came to work with a 102 degree fever.

I hope the covid pandemic has made that attitude a thing of the past.

I'd like to think so. Though I did have to instill in both Boys, early in their working lives, that simply being tired because you stayed up late the night before playing videogames is NOT an acceptable reason to skip work.

Isn't that what the cockpit is for?

seedsbelize2 07-08-22 11:06 AM

Seems we've reached our high for the day, at 33 Proper. A bit more humid than Wed., at 57%. I will head out shortly

Flight Deck to you sir.

Stupid weather forecast suggests that Saturday will be a washout. I hope that changes, but looks like Saturday's ride will be a no-go.
