Exploration of the Pickle Jar

Boring day. Boring, boring, boring. It’s a very good thing that I have plans for tonight, because otherwise I might just have to sit at the kitchen table eating pickles all night just for something to do. I don’t know why I would eat pickles, but I suppose that after I ate everything else, pickles would be all that were left.

Stephanie called me back last night and we made plans to go see The Pacifier tonight. The only problem was that I thought I could get out of band practice, since no one had told me about it. When I told my parents about my plans, they said, “Oh, but you have band practice tomorrow.” It’s a real pity that they went and had dinner with Mrs. Haacke, the organist at our church, a few days ago. Apparently she knew all about this practice for Sunday morning and told my parents all about it, but they forgot to pass it on to me. The previous week they had been discussing having a practice on Wednesday, but nothing solid was ever decided. But apparently it was decided that it would be at 7:00.

If mucus were to go on strike for a day, the entire human race would be obliterated from the face of the earth quite shortly.

I’m not sure where the above paragraph came from, but surely it must have been from somewhere deep in the dark recesses of my brain. Not much happened today, and when that occurs, I tend to get slightly loopy – or loopier than usual, rather. This March Break is turning out to be quite boring, because I haven’t made plans to do anything, and I can’t get ahold of anyone to make plans with. Steph sent me an email saying we should hang out, but I haven’t been able to get ahold of her since. No one’s online really, except for Angie every once in a while. Maybe I’ll do something with her, but not tonight – because she’s offline again. Maybe a movie would be good; I’ve checked out the movies playing right now, and they all look at least bearable to watch. “Hostage” looked like it had potential, but it was also easy to see that it could have one of those horribly unrealistic storylines. I mean,…Continue Reading
