I was walking to my car the other day when I spied an orange rectangle sticking out from under my windshield whipper.
This caused two very unpleasant sensations for me: one, when my heart stopped because I thought I had gotten a ticket and was going to have to argue that “helloooo I have a parking tag hanging right there from my rear view mirror, RIGHT THERE,” and, two, when I became spiteful and swore vengeance on the person who idiotically decided to print a flyer on the same orange colored paper as parking tickets, which I soon realized was the real identity of the rectangle.
Hello there, how is your Monday going?
Mine’s going rather well, thank you, except for one little incident. Oh, would you like to hear about it? It’s nothing, really, but if you want to listen, I guess I can tell it. It started with me shimming into my newly purchased outfit, and ended with me getting rather wet.
