This is a real thing that happened just right now:
I wake up, stagger to my office, and flop down in my chair the way I do every morning. (Yes. I’m sleeping way in. Blah blah not feeling well lately.) Looks like my wife is out running errands.
Notice I forgot to post that Carol of the Bell post, which was supposed to go up this morning. Oops. I hit post on that. Check email: Nothing. Comments on my website: A few. Twitter: Ah. Here’s one from my wife from a few hours ago. Says our new couch arrived.
I lean forward in my chair and look out to the living room. Sure enough. There it is. Hm. Not bad.
So, I just learned via Twitter that there was new furniture in the very next room.
EDIT: Did you know that “Shamus” is slang for “detective”?
