Mother Nature’s blowjob


I’m at the computer, in front of my big window, and I just saw a yellow
basketball go north up the street, probably clocking a good 10 mph. The
wind has been howling here for several days, blowing dust and the first
of the spring pollen all over the place. It’s annoying, but at least
when the wind is blowing like this we don’t have our famous humidity.
Tomorrow is supposed to be stormy … the kind of weather that spawns
tornados.

The prospect of tornados has lost most of the sense of excitement from
childhood. But at least we have ready access to a storm cellar now that
Alex’s friend’s family has moved into the house two doors away.

Got back from Sprawl-Mart just a little bit ago. I bought the ink and paper to print the two copies of The Prometheus Syndrome
I’ll need to send to Lantz. I’ve been editing today, but took a break
to do some online research for news events of June and October 1987. I
also need information on any popular home pregnancy test that could
have been used in October 1987. I’ve been told the one I described in
the book wasn’t available until the early 1990s. I should just call my
wife and have her ask one of the pharmacists she’s working with, huh?
Duh.

I have to get offline to do that. Already got the news events. Do you
remember Margaret Thatcher becoming the first British prime mininster
to win a consecutive third term in June 1987? How about when the Air
Force jet crashed into an Indianapolis Ramada Inn in October 1987,
killing 10? Factual details will help with suspension of disbelief,
right?
