Cratering

a half-stack doesn't fit in the trunk

A fitting end to this day

Standing in my driveway, shivering, fingers fumbling and stiff, disconnecting the battery of my ten-year-old car because some bug in its internal computer won’t turn the interior lights off and I don’t know how else to stop them.

Tomorrow’s fitting start, then, will be reconnecting that battery, probably in an icestorm, so I can drive it—interior lights ablaze!—to the dealer where I will get a $500 rodgering for them to reset a computer that is 1/100000 as sophisticated as my phone.
