a lot of bloggers seem to have a theme for Fridays... for example MJ has a filthy Friday thing generally happening. and others do the same... id like a theme for my Fridays... like "i don't want to be at work, id rather be home having a beer" Friday postings... but that is my everyday theme here. i also thought of "four letter word Fridays", but that also is one of my daily themes. "fuck the world Fridays" nope... "flick-a-booger Friday"...nah "finger yerself Friday"...hmmm... "fuck-a-friend Friday".... that might get people into trouble. "file yer fingernails Friday"...what? all of these suck.
i just thought of "things that suck Fridays", but that is also something i do here everyday. but this morning for instance. i hooked up my log splitter to the back of the truck to let a friend borrow after work. i drive like a fucking turtle down the two miles of dirt road and hit the pavement, where i can increase my speed to ten miles an hour! woo hoo! I'm heading down the one lane road and get to a sort of switch back in the road, when all of a sudden the fucking thing flips over up side down and comes off the tow ball. i slam my brakes and the thing slides and wedges up underneath the truck. BEAUTIFUL... I've got two girls in my truck that I'm bringing to school who promptly flip the fuck out...
*shaking head and saying to self WTF?*
put it back on the truck and survey the damage. engine has been ground down through the plastic covering into the head. broken dipstick tube and shattered support housing. smashed fuel tank and missing cap. broken hydraulic fitting and destroyed actuating valve. bent/pinched hydraulic steel tube and ground down cylinder... broken plastic fender and bent hitch pin.
WTF? i was going ten miles and hour... so people start pulling over to help me flip it back on its wheels and hook it back up.
"no, no man i got it. thanks. its not heavy." i say to several different helpful folks.
have you ever tried to help a biker pick up his/her Harley after he/she dumps it? you don't even want to go there. back the away and pretend you didn't see it happen. imagine that and the fact that it was dumping gallons of hydraulic oil all over the place and i didn't want to stick around and clean it up...
i had some Mercedes Benz tailgating me down the rest of the canyon for a while. i look back and they have their windshield wipers on... heh heh, that's oil splashing up on your windshield, grill, hood and lights motherfucker. now get off my ass. no sooner had i said that to myself, when they backed way off and pulled over...heh heh. how do you like me now?
anyway i was wondering what i should designate my Fridays. this one I'm going to call my "WTF just happened Friday".
any better suggestions will be appreciated.... have a nice day.
