I guess he showed me.

November 15, 2008

Lauren, Lloyd

We went to the state surplus auction today.  Well, Lloyd went while I ran around doing errands. When I came back, I was pleased to see that he showed great restraint and actually bought useful things – two laser printers for school.  Two GIANT laser printers. I told him there was no way we would ever fit even one in the car, so let’s just go get lunch and he could pick them up another day.  (Auctions make me hungry.)

He proved me wrong.  We didn’t just get one in the back seat – we got two.  And by ‘we’, I mean ‘he’.

He’s got mad Tetris skills.

Of course, it wasn’t a completely perfect day.  Somehow, Lloyd thinks he broke his finger at the auction.  It wasn’t loading the printers, it was some other mystery time.  He thinks a ninja probably broke it.  Sneaky ninjas.

I checked it with my x-ray vision.

    Are you reading the Wheel of Time books again? Maybe Sammael broke your finger. …or is he dead? I could never keep track of all the stuff that happens in those stories.

      A think he may be (and/or has been) dead., but I don’t know if that rules him out as a suspect.

      I don’t know anymore if my finger is really broken. It is still tender, but it doesn’t hurt so much anymore, except if I touch it. I have to take the splint off to type, but typing doesn’t hurt.

      I might try that new “typing with your mind” thing.

        Do you think they will write an ending if you continue to read the books?


        • Lloyd Said on:

          It’s not like he died suddenly or anything. He wrote up an outline, copious notes, and recorded the main story line. Someone else is finishing it up (I forget the guy’s name) and last I heard they expect it in the Fall of 2009.

    With the driver’s seat up that far so the printers would fit, I suspect he broke his finger engaging the turn signal. I imagine his finger ran into his knee.

    Had I known, I would have had you buy a printer for the clinic. It looks like there’s enough room in the car for a third one. They could use a second one. And a heavy duty one would serve their purposes a long time. Sorry to read about your broken finger.

    Lloyd says he broke his finger, but I think he bid on the split at the auction and needed an excuse to wear it.
