fun with numbers

5 number of people who don't fit comfortably around a coffee table for a meal



4 thickness, in inches, of our temporary bed, a futon



3 projected delivery dates that have come and gone


2 the number plastic forks broken while trying to hold a ribeye still to be be cut with a plastic knife


1 the number of times per day, at least, that the personal property office can expect my phone call

its funny, well not haha funny, but you know what I mean... it's funny that this post became a countdown of sorts. The latest news is that they don't know when they will deliver, they'll call us when they are able to set up a delivery date. At least they can't get that wrong. So we have no date to 'countdown' to.
I think this is worse than before. At least, and by this, I mean, the very least - the stuff is ON island. So close yet so far away...

I'm so sorry! Hope it surprises you soon!

I find it amusing that a government agency has a personal property department and they are holding your personal property hostage. The irony is stunning.

This is the funnies post I've read in a LONG time.

Although, I'm sorry your stuff hasn't come yet. :(
