When they have movies about disasters, earthquakes, tidal waves and such, part of the thrill comes from watching that one guy who is standing and facing imminent death, but at the last minute, somehow dodges the bullet.
I'm getting tired of living like that.
I don't know why I don't learn, but I don't. I do the same thing every time.
Tomorrow I have upward of twelve people coming to dinner, a twice-postponed Christmas celebration. And as usual, I'm about 5% prepared.
So as usual, I will be out at the stores, cursing them for what's sure to be inventory shortfalls consisting of only the items I need, and trying to get back here in time to sort it all out. My youngest daughter has basketball in the morning at 8:30, so that's my way of guaranteeing that I'll be awake, up and running.
But...that lava flow is coming awfully close...
