Something to stamp out

"Our work force," says the United States Postal Service, "is focused on the worldwide movement of messages and merchandise."

And, at least in one unnamed post office (ZIP code 55xxx), the delivery of unsolicited political commentary.

Although this is definitely a "F You, gimme my stamps, meathead" situation, you have to also remember that postal workers will one day be ex-postal workers, and you don't want to add to their disgruntlement too much.

Terkish Payne, at least, that's my theory.

It's your theory that you're Terkish Payne? Same one who needs to make a trip this way?

Hey now, I'm still having sleep dysfunctions. Sometimes I sleep days, sometimes nights. Been days for a while, but I wish it would change over, because waking up in a pool of sweat just sucks in all kinds of ways.

Terkish Payne, call you tomorrow.

ps-those commercials about not sleeping at night because you toss and turn and don't get good sleep because you don't have a WonderMitten Mattress or whatever are total BS. I don't sleep well at night, and when I sleep, I wake up in the exact same position I fell asleep in, and don't move at all except for the breathing stuff. There, take that for a great big rant. If you can't fit it into your pipe to smoke it, then get a hookah and share with friends. w00!

I think you have trouble sleeping because you don't toss and turn.

Nah, it's no mystery, really. Anyone who shares a bed with someone who snores knows why sleeping when they don't is easier.
