A farmer got pulled over by a state trooper for speeding, and the trooper started to lecture the farmer about his speed, and in general began to throw his weight around to try to make the farmer uncomfortable. Finally, the trooper got around to writing out the ticket, and as he was doing that he kept swatting at some flies that were buzzing around his head. The farmer said, "Having some problems with circle flies there, are ya?"

The trooper stopped writing the ticket and said"Well yeah, if that's what they are, I never heard of circle flies." So the farmer says "Well, circle flies are common on farms. See, they're called circle flies because they're almost always found circling around the back end of a horse."

The trooper says, "Oh," and goes back to writing the ticket. Then after a minute he stops and says, "Hey...wait a minute, are you trying to call me a horse's ass?" The farmer says, "Oh no, officer. I have too much respect for law enforcement and police officers to even think about calling you a horse's ass."

The trooper says, "Well, that's a good thing," and goes back to writing the ticket. After a long pause, the farmer says, "Hard to fool them flies though."

Recently, the screw on the right side of my glasses has been coming loose. Luckily, I keep a small jeweller's screwdriver handy for just such eventualities. Today, though, after my noontime flick and lunch, I was just logging into CoH when I thought to clean my glasses. Imagine my annoyance when the screw pops completely out of the frames and promptly disappears.

Now, that's bad enough. Crawling around on the floor for an hour, looking for a tiny, tiny screw, without my glasses, is just no fun. Then of course, we have the hilarity of trying to find something in the house, wire-wise, I can use to temporarily fix things, and the bending of the frames while I try to make THAT work. At some point, I lamented the fact that I had kept my old glasses for all this time, and tossed them only this week...then remembering I hadn't taken the garbage out, so there was the dig through the bin to find them. Success there, but then we have to get a screw out of them and into the new glasses, only to discover that it is just a HAIR too large. Still, I got it in place enough to hold things together, and once Dianna got home, made a trip to the eyeglass place and had it fixed properly.

Major pain in the ass for such a small tribulation.

Oh, forgot to mention: I had the splendid honour of introducing Erik to the wonderfulness that is Orange Julius, this evening. Gotta tell ya, I LOVE being the guy that brings up things he ends up lovin' the Hell out of.
