Dave: The Morning After the Night Before

Bad things happen when you're really, really tired.

I woke up late, having hit the sack a bit after 3. 

It turned out that I hadn't turned off the sink I was going to wash dishes in.  Fortunately the heating ducts had drained some of it out of the kitchen.

I hadn't put the dog into the back, either.  Well, at least the flooding water had dealt with the mess on the carpet.

I also hadn't closed the front door behind me.  But that had let the rest of the water drain, discouraging anyone from robbing the place.

Perhaps it had worked out okay.

Jim: Below Exhaust

“Nope,” I said, looking up from the catalog and shaking my head. “These aren’t what I want.”

The jumpsuited clerk looked at me wearily. “Then tell me again what you want.”

I sighed. “Okay.” I nodded at the people in the waiting area. “Most of those folks are tired.”

He nodded.

“While you guys,” I pointed at the clerk and his buddy behind the counter, “Are really tired.”

He nodded again, slower this time.

“And I want to be really, really tired!” The next page I flipped showed monster trucks. “Here!” I shouted. “These are the Firestone tires I want!”
