Bad Day

We missed the bus this morning because I thought that we'd already missed the bus. I mean we were out there for half an hour waiting so I came back in and decided to check the time. Well, about two minutes later I heard the horn on the bus. The trees blocking the road prevented the driver from seeing that we were coming back out the door. I drove the kid to school and beat the bus there.

I don't know how but I managed to get home in time to do a quick load of laundry. I actually did it yesterday but today I had to redo it because I had hand washed it and left it in the water too long. It was soar so into the washing machine it went. Well, when I went to hang the laundry outside I heard water running. Nice, another leak under the house.

OK for the moment the pipe is fixed but we can't use the bathtub in the back. Now it's already time to go meet the school bus, hopefully they won't be as late dropping her off as they have been.

Left

The statue was becoming discolored from the rain, green and blue blotches were everywhere. Frustration was taking its toll on the artist as he tried to match the original color with only an ounce left in the can. The feedback on the original concept had been mixed at best and now the rains had left him with a disaster threatening his career.
What is the statue of? Why is the discoloration causing the creator so much concern?

“You’re delusional, it’s fine.”
“Not it’s too hot.”
“It’s a tub of ice. It is a reach to say it is hot.”
She walked away and left him sitting there to think about what he was actually trying to say.

Flash in the Pan: Regress

Up, down, right, left.
The motion was making his hands numb but he was determined beat the game once and for all. The idea that he could not make it to the end of the level by the time they called him to dinner was unacceptable.
“Is that all he does all day, at 40?”
“Yes.”
“What caused him to regress?”
“He knows he’s dying.”
What is he dying from would cause him to regress? Is he actually regressing or simply in denial?
