Sorry, no photo.

July 25, 2007

Journal, Lauren

I could take one, but that would involve going outside, taking a picture, hauling the camera in and figuring out how to edit it on this computer from school. Too much trouble. I’ll just tell the story.

I’d like to change the housekeeping area at school and build a cool framed-wall shell around it that I can’t explain. Whenever I get the bug to actually build something, it’s much better if the lumber is already purchased and waiting in the basement. Otherwise I go to buy it, realize how much it’s going to cost and then chicken out – wasted trip. So, now there are some two-by-fours in the basement ready for a spare moment.
When I bought them at Menard’s (the smart man’s Home Depot) I loaded them into the back of the truck , tied them together, then exited going forward so I wouldn’t back into anyone with my sticking-out boards. There was an awfully nice truck beside me on the right, so I made a hard left so I wouldn’t scratch him…. and scraped my own truck on the cart corral. Stupid Lauren.

    Stupid Cart Corral— you know there is a disclaimer for carts that bash into your vehicle, but I don’t think there’s anything about 2x4’s--should have hit the awfully nice truck
