Things That Suck

I made a list of some of the things that pissed me off today. That list can be found below.

  • Anti-gay lawmakers who use Grindr to find sex
  • Gun control, or lack thereof
  • How sometimes the iPhone's Music app doesn't work unless WiFi is enabled
  • Knee pain
  • Muni
  • My mom being gone
  • The NFL's war on women
  • San Francisco's war on homeless people
  • UPS
  • VRBO

Because the items on the above list aren't what I'd like to remember about this day, I've decided to swallow my pride and get all dog blog up in here again (thanks a heap for that phrase, Laura).

At some point between three and four o'clock this morning Bevan and I were awakened by faint yelps from the foot of our bed. Patches was crying. Because I was half asleep and because I had never heard her make those noises before, Bevan had to explain to me that she was having a nightmare. He said that given her past he wasn't surprised, which broke my heart a little. We coaxed Patches up to the head of the bed and took turns scratching behind her ears and speaking to her in those super gross, high-pitched, human-as-animal voices that I hate but can't help until she fell back to sleep. I fell back to sleep a little while later feeling pretty lucky for all three of us.
