Dear God

So on my walk back from the gym, I noticed that everyone on the main ave has a ‘No Parking’ sign posted on their garage door, presumably because people love parking in driveways, but also – and primarily – because we all have secret dreams of storming out of our abodes, gesturing at whatever’s posted and screaming “Can’t you read the sign?” which is why I have a “No penises not in buttholes” sign posted on my garage, except I don’t have a garage so it’s actually in my bedroom, leading to many uncomfortable (comfortable?) nights home alone.

Anyhow, more importantly, next time the home owners are out in front of their ‘No Parking’ signs, I will approach them all flustered and give them a ticket for disobeying the posted rule because they have a car parked in their own garage.  You see?  It’s clever.  You are laughing.

One day, with enough motivation, I’d like to add some gym-related crap here, but then I might have to actually stand by the things I say and that kind of permanence is damned frightening.

But it is always a rewarding leg day when you’re frightened to walk down the steps on the way out because you might fall.
