If It's Tuesday It's . . .

Becca and I got an early start on our morning hike west of Tortugas Mountain for two reasons:  I awoke twenty minutes before my alarm went off and, after our trek, I wanted to get started on my weekly shopping errands before Target and Albertsons got mobbed up.  We had a great time in the out-of-doors today, and it's a good thing because the rest of the morning and early afternoon seemed destined to be one of those periods when everything gets aggravatingly annoying.  Target had only its self-service checkout aisles open and Albertsons was packed with zombies that had been ferried over from a local cemetery.  The roads seemed to be filled with drivers who never should have been issued a license, and the traffic signals were all bollocksed up; in the early afternoon, while returning from mailing some bills at our local post office, Becca and I caught every red light on University Avenue.  Obviously the lights had been timed by some malicious traffic engineer.  Just one of those days, I guess.  Good thing we had such a swell outing in the morning.
