I looked for a book, any book, that was closer than this one. I gazed longingly at my Foundations of Education textbook, and slightly further away, my copy of Hackers: Heroes of the Computer Revolution. Alas, I was left with this quote:
"If a deposit is required, it will be returned as a credit on your bill 11 to 13 months after service is established, assuming your bills have been paid on time."
From the BELLSOUTH Real White Pages.
- Buoyancy Disorders
Apparently, and this is from the New York Times Magazine, there is such a thing as buoyancy disorders among fish. The poor little guppies are doomed to swim upside down, or, worse, always tail end up or head end up. Feeding the fish a crushed pea might cure this disorder, or it might need surgery.
- Dream Sequence
There's massive flooding in the town where my grandmother lives. This is a small town, but apparently they've built an airport here, because they're airlifting 250 guys to help. I don't know how 250 guys can help a town that's already flooded while it's still being flooded, but oh well. I have my car and my family is there. I tell them I'm going back to my hometown for something but I'm planning to be back in a bit. Should I pick anything up for them?
They need food. What kind? Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Apparently, you have to drive halfway across the state to acquire this scarce but desperately needed resource. I agree, but for 250 people that's going to be a lot of peanut butter and jelly, never mind the bread. Selfishly attempting to limit the damage to my wallet, I ask how much peanut butter each guy wants on his sandwich.
I really need to stop sleeping.
