That's not why I was late for work, though: (The Great Ranking Of Problems, New Addition!)
This morning, while doing "Mr Bunches-Ups," which are like sit-ups only Mr Bunches sits on my chest and spills some of his milk each time I go back down, I noticed that I had a bit of a hangnail. So when I went upstairs to get dressed, I tried to clip it off, but couldn't quite get it. I tried to file it off, but that just scratched my finger. I tried to bite it off, and I figure I loosened it because then I was able to go back to Plan A and clip it off, only I clipped off a little too much and now I've got a lopsided-looking fingernail and the skin that ordinarily is protected there is exposed to the elements...
I will rank this at:
5,000: Lopsided Nail Clipping.
173: Preshoveling & reshoveling snow.
721: Printer not holding a lot of paper at once.
. . .
15,451: Almost napping.
14,452: Worrying that there's too much peanut brittle leftover to eat before it goes bad.
22,372: Having hair which isn't quite a definable color.
22,373: Having too many songs on an iPod
Five Pages publishes a novel as I write it: Five pages at a time, each week day. Right now:
Up So Floating Many Bells Down: Sarah's fiance has drowned, and while she struggles to convince the world, and herself, that he was killed, her brother Dylan up and moves to Las Vegas to pursue a career as a photographer.
