puddles muddles and more

 west 80th street
is bring

 they're doing it
 in two stages

 they come through at night
 rip up the existing paving

 towing cars 
whose owners
didn't see/read
 the signs
 up/down the street

 they tear up
 the street

 last night
 they finished towing at 8 p.m-ish

 we live on the ground floor
 two huge windows
 facing the street

 i was exhausted
  i was glad
toonman pointed out
 we wouldn't be able to hear the tv

 i went to bed

 watched something on his computer
 his headphones on 

when i woke at almost 8 a.m.
 i felt better

my monthly massage
was at 9:45 a.m. 
made me
even better 

it rained last night
 there were
 to be seen


 i headed across town
by the time i was done at the spa
 it had turned into a nice day

 was wonderful

 my masseuse
 told me
i should
payment from the state
 the left side of my neck/shoulder
 extra hard kneading
get the knots out

 came back across town
did some errands
i didn't get beautified™
 i am trying a new salon tomorrow

 last week
 i waited
 almost a half hour
my appointment time 

when i spoke to the person who handles scheduling
 i was told 
'its a saturday thats what happens

i told him
 that wasn't the way a service business is run
 i was going to say more 
in the end
 i decided
 it would fall on deaf ears 

 a better way to make my point
would be to take my business elsewhere

i will let you know how that turns out
