    Ever have one of those days???

    OK, so picture this. I am standing at the top of my driveway this morning, ready to push my garbage can (with the recycling bin balancing on top) down to the cul-de-sac. NO SOONER than do I take one step than OOPS - there go my feet out from under me. As I land hard on my wallet, I watch the garbage can (with the recycling bin STILL on top) slowly slide down the driveway, like a Fellini-esque dream (for those of you who have never heard of Fellini, Google him). At the end of the driveway, the can, of course, tips over, which knocks the recycling bin over. So, of course, I have to pick up the garbage and newspapers.

    To make this story even better, I can hardly stand up as I bend over to pick up the newspapers trying to blow away - the cul-de-sac is a skating rink, just like the driveway. Needless to say, this is beginning to get REALLY good.

    The best part is that I was only 1 minute late for work...

    PS - As I am driving in to work, I get a call from my wife, who has just gotten into a fender-bender with our truck. Luckily, she wasn't hurt, and neither was the truck.

    No, just soreness and a bruised ego...
