I love this journal entry. Thanks so much.

I have actually slept on the floor right out side the bathroom on one of those really nice bathroom rugs just to make sure I made it when the jet engines desided to ignite.

Dave Barry is the greatest! He is so funny... I love all of his work. :)
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.
