Drying out


… yesterday, I closed the store for the day with little to show for it.  I was depressed and the weather was again crappy as it has been all week. Plus the tech crew was complaining that no one was looking at the newest flip brochure.  I looked up as I was leaving the parking lot in my car, and saw this poor little drenched thing.

He looked rather forlorn, if not outright miserable under the grey sky that had just finished teeming. I imagined better days, blue skies, more money in the till.

Well, let’s not get too carried away. Here he is again, in a less amateurishly photoshopped version.

I get it now.  It was a message from Horus.  Soon, one way or another, this will all come to a stop.
