.yeksihw deen I
And why do I deen yeksihw, you may ask? Because it’s Backwards Day–that special day I spend undoing all the mistakes I made yesterday! Here’s my list so far:
- Take down my profile on AlmostParoled.com.
- Apologize to the neighbors for the mercury spill.
- Return the backhoe.
- Grow back my left pinky.
Days that don’t go your way can make you wonder why you even bother getting up off the floor each morning. But they can also be very instructive. For example, I learned that the annoying “engine emergency” light that I duct-taped over meant that my car needed oil! That should be easy enough to fix, right? But since it still wouldn’t run even after all that hydrofracking in my ex’s front yard, I had to spend half my morning calling both people on my phone contact list to see if one of them would haul it away for me. After the prescription hotline said no, I was stumped.
But not out!
By staring at one spot on the wall very hard for the next few hours, I managed to remember the name of the car store. I could take it to their exchange department for store credit!
Lucky for me, the car store is on the way to the liquor store, so I could follow my burnt rubber tracks. Having finally persuaded the nice blind lady next door to give me a lift, I made it to Liquor-All and bought myself a big bottle of whiskey to help me forget about my stupid broken car. So you see? If you believe in yourself and follow your bliss, the universe will provide your roommate’s spare change!
Let’s celebrate with a honking big cocktail before we get tired and brake into the Preloved Mattress store again for a good night’s sleep. This one should make you lose your car keys!

All the time in the fucking world
- Go to sleep.
- Wake up on another planet. Neptune, maybe.
Now that’s what I call a productive day!
Tomorrow: Opposite Backwards Day!!
This is day 110 of the “Race to Cure Crankiness” post-a-day challenge.
I have earned −$91.15 toward a facelift & bottle of whiskey.
