Excuse Me, But My Brain is Fried

Eggs Over Easy
These last scenes are killing me. I guess what I really mean is half the last scenes are killing me. One part of the story is easy to tell. I know where it's going, I've always known, and it's being downloaded from my head to my fingers.
The other part I also know the destination for, but it seems too simple all of a sudden and not enough for the space I am giving it. Does this make sense?
Gosh no. Sorry.
I trust it will all come to me, hopefully in a blinding mystical vision, but plain old Times New Roman will be fine.
Also clouding the vision is this old favorite:
Yes, that's right, the pump that brings water into my house [Becky's actual pump not depicted--we do have some scruples, plus it's underground, dude]. But we already dealt with this problem, you may be saying, dear reader, and you are right. We have. To the tune of a Large Sum of Money.
But sometimes life says: HAHA YOU TWIT!
IT'S NOT FIXED!
IT'S NOT EVEN SLIGHTLY FIXED!
IT'S NOT EVEN ALTERED.
Woman Bathing in a Shallow Tub
This is Woman Bathing in a Shallow Tub by Edgar Degas. It's what I'm going to be switching to if the plumber doesn't fix this problem on Monday. Oh goody--a whole weekend of water drama. Normally, I'd say well there's a book title, but I'm not nearly so cheerful right now.
I know. I know. I am still Living the Dream every day.
A bientot
love,
becky

Uh-oh. I think our houses are in collusion to make sure that vital parts are broken or non-functioning every day.

Sorry for the water woes and I hope they're fixed soon...

The ending may just become apparent as you go on with it ... trust the process ... then again, what do I know? I feel sorry for that woman tho' and trust that you do not have to resort to such measures.

Maybe you can borrow Maeve's pool!

You know, Maeve's pool is still sitting out there. You never know, sm.
