I'm getting giddy over the thoughts of Lori's imminent arrival. Hence, this piece of whimsy fell out of my brain and stained the blue pages:

Question of the week
If today is tomorrow,
and tomorrow is today,
then why is Wednesday
hobbling in bad clothes
up Thursday Ave.
in a Saturday hat
reading the Sunday papers?

Monday would be pleased
with Tuesday's questions.

At least that's what I heard her say.

Cool little poem with funny use of words.  

"If history is to change, let it change. If the world is to be destroyed, so be it. If my fate is to die, I must simply laugh"

You start with a false assumption, that's your problem.  Today isn't tomorrow.  It's today.

Although by now, the "Today" you were referring to is three days ago!  And by now, who knows?  It's insane!  

Hope you're having a blast, Mikey.

This was smashing, Mikey.

I was wondering that.
