Please note, this is a reposting of some previous entries made in 2016 when my position was eliminated and I found myself unexpectedly unemployed.

Day 12 of unemployment – Arizona Football and Wal-Mart Bathrooms

Day 12 of unemployment – This is a small update, and for this, I’m going to have to take it back to the previous night. You see, there was this football game. This game you see, pitted my Arizona Cardinals against the Green Bay Packers and was for moving ahead in the post-season. This game started at 8:30pm Florida time, it ended late. I mean really late. On top of that, it was a great game. One of those “did you see the game?” games. This was full of crazy plays, including an almost impossible “hail mary” and a coin flip where the coin did not actually flip. Couple this is a night full of storms, and bammo, not much sleep.

On a plus note, we were able to spend some quality time with the chicken-dog when the thunder happened. Oh, yeah!

That made my 0800 call time at church where I was working as the Producer, a bit of a challenge. I don’t think I really woke up until halfway through the 2nd service. No one seemed to notice so all was well. I was happy to realize that at least I was wearing pants.

Other than that, I spent most of the day working a firearm trade and eating various things. Overall, a day well spent.

Oh, a message to my fellow male people. When you are using a public toilet, please lift the lid before you pee in (or on) the toilet. This was even low for Wal-Mart standards. Not cool. Seat, UP, Leave it if you must, I won’t complain.
