Reach Out ...

Life's sense of humor is fairly weak, all things considered.

I come home today and the message light is on. Before I bother finding out which auto-dialer has blessed me with an actual voicemail, the phone rings twice. At one point it is my drugstore robot. And next is the finance company for my windows, asking for a payment they apparently never received, when I sent a check on February 15. Great.

Ask me if I've bothered considering the possibility the message was left by an actual human. My mom's on vacation, and everyone else ... well, as TEO and I say: yeah - but no.

Life? It's weak, as punch lines go. Just sayin'. Saw it coming a mile away. Very formulaic, very predictable, this joke.
