Drama in Dallas

Ms. Eclectic texted me about an hour ago telling me to turn on the news. I did, and ever since we’ve been following this story about an industrial plant in downtown Dallas exploding. Literally.

Thankfully, Fuzzy, whose office is very near there, and whose route takes him through the intersection of I-30 & I-35 which is currently closed, was late, and decided to take his conference call from home today.

But now? Now he’s saying he plans to drive into the office.

I informed Ms. E. of this, and her response was a rather Shatneresque “Good. God.”

My reply? “Wasn’t there something about God protecting fools and little children? The operative word here being ‘fools’.”

More pragmatically, my mother simply advised me to make sure his life insurance was current.

  2. I immediately thought of you when I first saw the video of the fire and explosions. I then tried to look for familiar areas – the shots with the downtown core in the background allowed me to confirm that I had been in that neighborhood my last time I was in Dallas. Gaa!

    You DID update his insurance, right? :)

    Dropped by from Michele’s, but I’d be here anyway. You’re quite literally one of my all-time favorite reads.
