.. people resort to making their own wheelchairs. Fortunately for you, I have an actual photograph displaying this.
But seriously- that cushion is from a Shop Ko rocking chair (I know this because I used to own one, bitches) strapped to what appears to be... bicycle tires? I mean, kind of fucking genius if you ask me. Obviously their disability check is pending or something.
Another story I have seen on Facebook which appears to be a trending thing is that people are stealing newspapers from newspaper stands. Now, I might just be a pessimistic asshole but I have always wondered how that wasn't a bigger crime? Like, you put your $1.50 in for a Sunday paper, it opens and you grab one. Well, what's really stopping you from grabbing all of them? Maybe knowing you'll get in trouble, but truly- how is this not a bigger deal? Of course, almost everyone on Facebook is blaming the dumpster diving ladies of the Extreme Couponing show, or the women who drive around to foreclosed houses and grab their newspapers for this. I'm lucky that my gas station lets me have whatever their leftover papers on Mondays, but I use them for other things, not just coupons. If I'm lucky all the inserts haven't been completely stolen. The gas station people tell me women have come into the store and literally just went through papers taking inserts. Um, considering the papers are directly in front of the counter this seems a bit strange. Why aren't employees telling them not to?
I don't know. But now I kind of feel like stealing a bunch of newspapers just because it's proven that I can. I won't because that involves me getting dressed right now and that defeats the purpose of a lazy Sunday.
Speaking of lazy Sunday- you'll notice I've been quiet since Thursday. Well folks, I have had the WORST case of poops ever. I'm not even kidding and I'm not trying to gross you out. But it started Friday evening, I was up ALL NIGHT and I seriously thought I was dying. I hadn't eaten lunch or dinner so quite frankly, I wasn't sure where it was coming from. Then Saturday was even worse. If I didn't already have my period (seriously, this weekend blows) I would have thought I was in labor. I mean, it felt *exactly* like contractions. I think around 2am Saturday morning I started lamaze breathing and was looking online if it's possible to give birth while having your period because I was in that much pain.
Fortunately, I'm better now. I still feel like I have a woozy stomach but I'm at least eating and not spending the majority of my day in the bathroom. Win.
So um, how was YOUR weekend?
