I have kept the computer up and running for another day, but it wasn’t easy: I had to fight off the packers who are moving inexorably, mechanically, like locusts through the house, wrapping, boxing, taping. Those dirty clothes I’d dropped in front of the washing machine on Monday? We’ll be finding them in a box in October. While I defended my computer by covering it with my body, the packers got their revenge by packing my toothbrush somewhere; maybe in that box over there with the Ark of the Covenant.
They also boxed our Rand McNally 2003 Road Atlas, but do we really need it? Just how hard can it be to drive from point A (see map above) to point B? True, I did manage to get lost in Wyoming while driving from Chicago to Colorado Springs, but that drive entailed a sidetrip to Mount Rushmore.
Did I mention we’re making the drive with three (3) cats? I didn’t? Must be good old Denial kicking in. What would we do without it?
