Throughout human history mankind has worshiped many Gods; Zeus, Ra, The Giant Turtle, etc. However, as time went by, many of these Gods were forgotten and replaced with new Gods.
Now, these Cosmic Gods are very annoyed with having been forgotten and replaced; so they spend their days picking on people. They donít actually kill anyone, they just slightly maim and injure. Every time you lock your keys in the car, trip over invisible cracks in the sidewalk, or bite your cheekÖespecially when you bite your cheek, thatís the Cosmic Gods picking you as their plaything for the day, week, month, or even year. Every time you sleep through an important morning meeting, get a divorce, or stub your toe; you can blame it on the Cosmic Gods.
The Gods have decided that they have not played with me enough lately; so theyíre making up for it this week.
Monday night, I had a bike accident that left me skinned, bruised, sprained, and with a throbbing headache.
Wednesday morning, I jumped on my bike only to learn that itís un-ride-able and I had to take a taxi to work and ended up 20 minutes late.
Wednesday night, I bought a new bike. But in order to get it home in my roommateís car we had to deflate the tires.
I then had a spasm in my neck all night which made sleeping nearly impossible.
Thursday morning, running late again, I eagerly re-inflated my new bikeís tires only to have the back tire explode, which resulted in another $13 cab fare to get to work (mercifully, I was on time).
Tonight Iím going to get to spend the night swapping out inner-tubes and parts from my old bike, to repair my new bike (of course, my right hand is still sprained and cut up from the accident, which is going to make it so much fun.)
Iím also going to have to set up a Drís appointment to get my neck checked. woohoo
