I awoke late this morning, but was in no rush...enjoying a rare day off from both jobs. Before getting up, I read a chapter of Mean High Tide, by James Hall, but then had a smoke and a cup of coffee in the garage, committing myself to buying training pads and sugar for mom. Back inside, my brother was playing a virus game on the computer when I spoke to him about the latest strategy game from Maxis to hit the stores. Eventually, I got into the shower, rubbing the grease off my body with a bar of Ivory.
