I remember what it was.

The comment about it being easier for singles to be laid off came after the woman's statement that people who are single should be laid off before people who have families. I'm serious. Apparently other people's families are my responsibility, and I'm obligated to give up my job, which I've earned and which I'm good at, for them. I should have suggested that single people who are laid off be supported by people who are married, and gotten her address for my next mortgage payment.

"For the first time, considered leaving this stinking Midwestern hellhole of undereducated, fur-wearing, cigarette-smoking Neanderthals living in the backwoods of parochialism. Reminded myself that I was just having a bad day."

Sounds to me like someone needs a dose of Lake Shore Drive...

No kidding, except that given how things have been going, I'm waiting for it to die. With my luck, it would die right on LSD. By the Belmont exit. On a Cubs-game day.

There are worse places to die, although probably not worse company.

Oh yeah.

Oh. Yeah.

Well, today I took the Outer Drive Express down LSD and it did the trick. I was in the best mood.
