Today's disaster

Post by asthmatic camel » Thu Sep 06, 2018 3:01 pm

So, I've been on a bit of a bender this week.

Returning from the Fridge with two bottles of beer in my pockets, I tripped and couldn't get up.

Why? Because my belt loop had somehow become caught in the rear derailleur of my bike.

Took me half an hour to escape!
Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

My old Mum was here, too.

How embarrassing!

I'm surprised you're still alive, AC.

The beer was just fine. :)

Lightly hopped with a hint of malt.

I might just go and get another. :)

Throw the fucking beer away.

That's the plan. A week of agony and I'll be back to normal.

A bottle of lucozade solved the problem. Now I have to work off the excess sugar.

Reckon I'll flame De-Bunk for a few hours. ;)
