Weirdness rising

Lightning in Seattle tonight. And thunder. In mid-November. These are not usual things.

Morning marked by low frustration tolerance on my part, as well as the boneheaded move of leaving my keys at home. Thankfully Dave arrived soon after the discovery, enabling me to retrieve the contingency keys I keep in the office. Explained to Dave that I am not an organized man, just one with a lot of contingency plans.

Productive day despite my short fuse. Thank God for Tonto's virtual company and few interruptions.

Dinner was brought to me by the letters K, F, and C.

Three women sitting next to me broke into prayer. Remarked to them afterward how refreshing it was to hear people comfortable and confident praying. Not to fall into the trap of the Pharisees, mind you, but I suspect none of these women's prayer closets sit neglected, and the world could use a few more pointers to reality.

Once I'd finished dinner, a man approached me saying I looked familiar. Turns out we met in 1989 at the University of Houston; I surprised him by telling him his name and the circumstance. Bit of an idiot savant that way.

My first eggnog latté of the season after dinner. There will be many more.

Meeting ran long tonight, but those kinds of things go down more easily when I know that I get my day off tomorrow.
