Gah…I cracked my knee on the vanity in the bathroom this morning, and my knee is now bright red and still sore…I suppose it matches the elbow I cracked on my sister’s dining table yesterday, though.

Would it help to have a bath? Or did you wind up cutting yourself?

I hope you feel better soon.

Yikes, Smerk! gulp

The teen Dragon took a spill in the hallway upstairs this morning as well.  She was coming out of her room with her stuff for school (Hands loaded up) and tripped over a hiking boot.  Ended up doing a hard shoulder plant into the hall landing. shut eye  I could tell from the sound that it was just one of those “Oops”. stumbles. big surprise

She’s sore, but okay. (Though she’s gonna have a pretty bruise in a little while.  I told her to tell her teachers that her crotchety old man beat her with his walker!) LOL  wink

*joke about being two days till retirement here*

Anyway…. I have just had a VERY odd experience.

So there I am, having a nap at work. This is fairly common, and I’m allowed to if it’s slow. Someone comes to the front desk.

I recognize the guy’s name, he’s been here before. He’s from some sort of slavic country. He’d apparently booked things online, which explains why there’s a reservation despite me being sure everyone had checked in.

So I go about checking him in. I notice a note on the reservation, saying he wanted to be on the top floor, away from the freeway - common request. I go to change his room number, but for some reason, its been preassigned and won’t let me change it. Wait a minute, why is it set to room 115? We don’t HAVE a 115… and why is my desk dissolving into silvery-gray mist… Sir? Where did you go…?

That’s when I woke up.

So… yeah. For all I worry about losing a sale because I was sleeping, it’s something else to lose one because you’re awake…

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.

I guess I missed the rapture again.  It appears I’m still here and there isn’t any looting happening.  Sigh, and I wanted a new laptop.
