As an update from last entry:
Cooper was inspected today and passed with flying colors. A Safelite Auto facility fixed the ding in the windshield, which occurred on the way back from Mardi Gras, filling it in with epoxy, a heck of a lot cheaper than replacing the entire windshield; and the repair was good enough to pass inspection. Note that I took the car in on May 1st, even though the sticker’s expiration date was on April 30th, moving the state-inspection requirement thirty-one days henceforth for next year.
My photo-license renewal took place this morning after the vehicle inspection. As expected, the photo looks incredibly worse than the last time, making me feel really apprehensive as to what the picture will look like four years from now, when I have to renew it again. I even got my ears lowered to look presentable for the event, but that didn’t work. The hairdo looks like a bowl cut with a part in the middle. Worse yet, my passport expires soon, and I’ll have to get a new portrait made to compare with the one from ten years ago. As my friends, the Rolling Stones, sang in one of their classics, “What a drag it is getting old.”
While the mojo was flowing, this perennial procrastinator even did the dreaded food-shopping, storing up on staples to last for the next couple of weeks, cutting down on sweets and fattening items from seeing how much my face has gotten fatter from the last photo-license picture. More exercise and less laziness are now on my springtime agenda. Losing at least ten pounds wouldn’t hurt either.
And lastly, speaking of comparing pictures, Day 78 of the demise of my science project shows little change from the last time. No mold has shown up yet. A few more lesions on the grapefruit’s outer skin have appeared, but the orb looks still relatively stable. Perhaps leaving it outside of the fridge on the table or kitchen counter would hasten its decomposition, but the chance of manifesting fruit flies increases infinitely, which would be quite annoying to have them flying all around my flat.
Quite an industrious day for this lazy-boned individual has also spawned this nonsensical entry. Hopefully you’ll find some humor in it.
