Long Fucking Day

Man, today was a stupidly long day and the last half of it sucked!

I started off with waking up early and doing a little cleaning around the house and in my car. I’m really glad I mostly cleaned out my car, for reasons they will become clear by the end of this.

Around noon, FedEx dropped off a box.

This box contained a new fishy friend, who I have decided to call Ziggy. This is the best photo I’ve been able to get of him so far. He’s extremely active and very hard to photograph.

He was pissed about being in the shipping bag and was thrashing about, stressing himself out pretty bad so he went into the quarentine tank pretty quickly.

I had a follow-up appointment with the gastroenterologist at 3pm, who told me my esophageal lining was precancerous, so we’d want to keep an eye on it, and keep my acid under control, but I should be fine. He said my colon and polyp were unremarkable.

After that I went by the post office and mailed a couple packages out, and headed over to PetSmart to grab some more of the goldfish pellets my fish like so much. So far this is a pretty good day, right?

But then I got in my car and got ready to leave to head home. I put the key in there ignition, started the car, moved my foot to the brake as I put the car in reverse, and the pedal sink to the floor with no resistance.

Great. No brakes. 3 hours later I got home, leaving my car at PetSmart, and tomorrow morning I am missing yet another week of Spanish class so I can get my car into the shop.

Monday I have exams I cannot miss and if my car isn’t ready by then, mom will have to take the day off work to drive me to class.
