You know what you should never do? Stand at the copy machine at work and decide that you want to make 3 copies of something. And then change your mind and decide you only need 2. And then change it one more time and decide you need 3 after all.
Because you may end up actually making 323 copies of something.
Ask me how I learned that.
Something else you should never do is clean your car windshield with Armor All car cleaner instead of the more traditional Windex. Your windshield will appear crystal clear in the daylight, but when it gets dark outside you will learn just how streaky it is, and will have to pull over on the side of the road and wipe the windshield with the sleeve of your sweatshirt so that you can make it safely home.
Let's just say IT HASN'T BEEN MY BEST WEEK.
The good news though is that the week is essentially over, because Matt and I leave in the morning to go camping. And unless things have really changed since the last time I was in a forest, there are no copy machines there that I can mess up.
The only possible problem we might face with our camping weekend is Hurricane Sandy, who is evidently alive and well and on the move. I am currently watching the weather to get the latest update and listen, I love some good meteorological drama as much as the next girl. But once the weather people start talking about the "cone of uncertainty," I start to feel a little bit like they're just manufacturing drama.
I heard talk of the "cone of uncertainty" on the 6:00 news, and when I turned the weather on just now, the meteorologist was explaining some "spaghetti plots," that she had created, which consisted of about 47 squiggly lines all over the map informing viewers that the hurricane could hit anywhere between Illinois and the mid-Atlantic or IT MIGHT NOT HIT AT ALL, WE DON'T REALLY KNOW.
If worse comes to worse and it starts to rain this weekend, we can just come home.
It's a good thing Matt's driving.
He always has a crystal clear windshield.
