Estimates and Lazy Dogs

I’m not sure what to write about today. Not much has happened at all. I dusted and vacuumed my room, and that’s about it. I also got a call from this place which is giving my dad a quote on a new counter and sink for the upstairs bathroom. The lady said something like this: “Could you please tell your dad that the quote will come to somewhere around $109…and 3 cents.” I wrote it down and said thank you, and then was like, Somewhere around? How is that an approximation? Did she shave off half a cent or something? I can’t stand when people do that. It’s like someone saying, “Oh, it’s approximately 5:04 PM.” Yeah, thanks for giving me that estimate, down to the exact minute. I could have used the seconds, though.

Anyways, I think that’s really all I can write about today. I haven’t done much of anything today, so I have nothing to talk about. And I can’t think right now, so I can’t talk about anything deep and profound. Hmm. Oh well. I guess I’ll just have to put this amazingly intricate sentence in to replace an intelligent one: The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. Think about that for a while. You might glean some important information from it. You might also learn your alphabet.
