Around 2:00 this morning, I was awoken by random flashes of bright light & a whole lot of grumbling....no, it wasn't my hungry tummy complaining that the rustic, yet gourmet PB&J sammich I nibbled on (7 hours earlier) wasn't enough to keep me satisfied....maybe I was dreaming.....or maybe I was having a stroke...
Worried, I started to pray to Zeus Vishnu Buddha the Little Baby Jebus: Please, if I'm about to be stricken down with a stroke, please show some compassion & let it only paralyze my left side of the body....I need the use of my right hand...to umm....turn the pages of the Bible & write all of those tithing checks to my local synagogue mosque church.
Silly me, I wasn't having a stroke at all....it was Thundering 'n Lightning....gasp....in L.A.???....during the summer?....well, it only rained a little bit....not even enough to wash my filthy car ....oh well.... I only hope that we'd get a little more of it, as we're pretty much in a drought condition right now.
So I'm about to look the gift horse in the mouth here & say: "damn you rain gods....you kept me up all night & only allowed me to have 4 hours sleep, but thanks for listening to my prayer....my right hand appreciates it".
