And then, purely hypothetically, I spent most of my day on an imaginary case which may or may not involve - purely for dramatic purposes, you understand - and adult
And this entirely fictional fairytale made me Very Sad, because I happen to like Llamas a great deal, and this hypothetical Llama was hurt when it crossed the street against the "No Llama Walking" sign. And I hope that if I were to ever raise a pretend Llama, I would teach it to cross the street very, very carefully.
Is everyone thoroughly confused? Excellent! I was going to go with camels but I think camels spit.
So then I was driving home, idly dreaming up the Haiku of the Day (below), and trying to talk myself out of a foul mood when I had to stop short and the giant bottle of water I had carelessly left perched uncapped on the center console (because I'm Hydrating now!) went flying forward and poured all over my radio. I dried it off as best I could but then a full minute later my speakers crackled ominously. Excellent!
And then I started giggling. Because I thought that it was a good thing I just bought a $20 Nano since I'd clearly just shorted out my radio, nevermind that the Nano and the water were essentially serving the same end goal*, and wasn't life funny and circular like that.

Then the giggling might've turned a shade manic. Because, REALLY?! There was not enough chocolate in the house to fix this day - at least not without doing in the Easter bunny. Then I thought of the old cop joke - Put down the chocolate bunny and slllooowwly back away. Then I started laughing harder because it was a good thing I've been running, what with all the chocolate bunny and jelly bean eating that's been going on around here lately.
I just hope my fellow commuters thought there was something really funny on my now-shorted-out radio and not that they were witnessing Mommy losing it on her way home. Am off to the treadmill to burn up some of the Easter candy I may or may not have purloined from the children. Here's wishing you solid chocolate Easter bunnies to spare and secure water bottle caps.
