Fucking Wallet!!

Well, I'm at home, its 8:20 am, and I'm supposed to be boarding a plane to Kelowna, BC at this time. I got up on time. I showered. I packed. I got to the airport 30 min before boarding should start. But as I got to the ticket window -- no wallet. Fuck.
So of course I parked in the overnight parking, which apparently costs $2.50 even if you've only used 10 minutes. Fuck. I had no money of course, so I gave the guy what change I have (like $1.36 or something) and he pretty much had to let me through.
Anyway, I'm booked standby for a flight at 10:30 am for like $49 more or something like that.

And my wallet? At home on the table having a laugh. Fucker.

Yeah eventually. Had to go through Vancouver. But just gave me more time to read my book I guess.

I've done similar, before. It's always a fun way to have that instant dose of adrenaline and feel your heart do a double-thump at the "point of realization of fucking up."
I brewed a Kölsch yesterday.

Yeah. And those kind of fuck-ups you can't even learn from really. Its just a brain fart. At least if you do something dumb that you can learn from you learn something.

Hope the Kölsch works out!
