Am I the only weirdo that instinctively retaliates against inanimate objects when they jump out in front of me and cause me to hit my head or stump my toe? I always feel the need to punish the door frame or the table that caused my bruises. And curse at them too of course. It’s only fair. I have a bag of ice on my … Continue reading ouch

I spent most of it cleaning and “parent-proofing” the house. My parents and bro came up late Saturday afternoon to spend what was left of the weekend with us.
