Got this in an email from my friend Mel. Thought it was cute.

A Bottle of Wine

For all of us who are married, were married,
wish you were married, or wish you weren't
married, this is something to smile about the
next time you open a bottle of wine:

Sally was driving home from one of her
business trips in Northern Arizona when she saw
an elderly Navajo woman walking on the side of
the road. As the trip was a long and quiet one,
she stopped the car and asked the Navajo woman
if she would like a ride. With a silent nod of thanks,
the woman got into the car.

Resuming the journey, Sally tried in vain to
make a bit of small talk with the Navajo woman.
The old woman just sat silently, looking
intently at everything she saw, studying every
little detail, until she noticed a brown bag on
the seat next to Sally.

"What's in the bag?" asked the old woman.
Sally looked down at the brown bag and said,
"It's a bottle of wine. I got it for my

The Navajo woman was silent for another
moment or two. Then speaking with the quiet
wisdom of an elder, she said, "Good trade."

Well, I went to work this morning...and actually got to WORK! YAY!

Also, I was figuring that, since tomorrow is my last day, they would just "convieniently" forget that today's my birthday, but...they didn't. I walked in and they were just about to have a meeting, and Borky said, "Happy birthday," and so did Nicole, and then I got a gift. Granted, it was the default gift that everyone gets...a $3 collection of bath gel, lotion, body mist, and loofah, all in a tasteful clear plastic bag with brightly colored fruit on it. The scent of the product is "Passionate Purple."

But it was nice that they actually acknowledged my birthday and gave me something. Des (whom I worked with for the first time last Friday) even brought me a birthday donut.

After work I came home and took a shower, then remembered that I promised Jackie I would make oatmeal raisin cookies before I left (they turned out...lookin' kinda odd) and then I checked my mail and received a notecard from my insurance agent saying my car premium was past due. Aw fuck. I didn't even know it was DUE. Also, I think it's like $700, so I'm gonna have to dip into my savings. Blaaaaaaaaah.
