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.
