IT IS SLIGHTLY COLDER THAN YESTERDAY BUT NOT AS COLD AS TOMORROW
Fucking idiots. 20 degrees Fahrenheit below 0 at the bottom of the mitten where the damned wind pushes it in past the cuff. Fingers no matter how well covered are too much smothered to be of any use to them trying to unlock a car that has a fucking 50/50 chance of starting, strip off the gloves and get the door unlocked, feel the frostbite eating away at the upper layers. Rolled the dice car started after several wheezy attempts. Work called, be nice go in for the one who says she can’t make it because it’s cold, too God damned cold to leave her bed. She, of course has a better lie than that, something about the 4th of July. Out you go to try to get there where you make your wages filling pages taking messages for the management that didn’t bother to even wake up from their slumber much less dress in ten Michelin Man lumbering layers to just get out the door. Dreams of their guaranteed salary fill their fucking heads. Makes no difference though to the fucking idiots who will for a dime’s sake keep pouring more and more and always more shit into the atmosphere. Hey who here doesn’t like the youtube video of Rhode Island sized bergs calving off the Antarctic ice sheet? Fucking idiots, my kids worry about not having Social Security in 40 years, I worry about there not being 40 dirty damn years left on the planet so humans can man it.
