No prompt. The plan for writing today has gone out of the window.
In the last 48 hours, a toilet has broken beyond my ability to fix it, I scheduled a plumber, my niece has run a fever, got dinner for my sister and my niece, and I’ve been in an online and in car search for Children’s Tylenol. No luck, because of a local shortage, but I found some children’s ibuprofen.
There was one funny thing today. I answered a call from a number I didn’t recognize because I was expecting someone to call. Instead, I got a person who didn’t know my name, claimed to be ‘from your TV provider’ (his words exactly) and that ‘my box was invalid and I’d lose my channels.’ I don’t think he expected my answer to be a bright, “Great! I’ll cancel my service. That will save me a lot of money. Thanks for letting me know!” I hung up before he could respond.
I need to get a better class of phone scammer.
And thanks to John S. For pointing out a technical problem with my blog accepting. I think it’s fixed for now. Now I have to figure out the pesky GDPR plug-in..

One of my goals in life is to build up my improv skills so I can keep scammers on the phone longer. So far my record is just over a minute, but there’s a lot of room for improvement.
Oh I get those scam calls all the time!! I had one who would call just to see how I was doing. I’d rattle on about having 37 cats and too many kids and one cat died and how was I to live with only 36 cats. It was quite funny at the time. I hope your niece feels better and your plumbing gets fixed!
Plumbing was fixed in under an hour. Yay! My niece is still sick. Boo! The doctor believes that it is the flu, which is the best case scenario.
That is an admirable goal.
