Is the Earth off its axis or something?
This morning on the gym's TVs I watched them pull people from their cars in Oklahoma. It seems that torrential rains have caused flash floods like those in Arkansas and West Virginia that swept through crowded campgrounds. Phoenix was 'chilly' yesterday and BP's rig continues to pump oil onto our beautiful beaches and into the wetlands. And the search for the missing child in Oregon is now classified as a criminal investigation.
We rented a car from Enterprise when my husband had a fender bender two weeks ago. The car smelled funny the first day, and got worse over the next three. When he turned it in, he mentioned something to them about the smell. They called two days later to say that a rodent had crawled in the exhaust and died, but not to worry, because 'we were covered'! It took us a while to realize what they were saying. They would have charged us if we had not taken out an additional policy on the rental!!!! Now they want us to file a claim with our insurance company!!! Can you believe this?
Middle daughter is on her way to the ER having inhaled cleaning fluids she was using to scour the bath tub. The good news is that she was cleaning and that the baby was not in the vicinity; the bad news is that she mixed cleaning products -- a general no-no -- and is now experiencing burning when she breathes.
Maybe ostriches have the right idea. Me? I'm looking for some sand...
