The worst possible thing has happened today. US Postal Workers went on strike. This means that I will not be receiving my X-Ray Spectacles within the allotted 4-to-6 week time frame. It will take much longer. I will not be able to execute my home asbestos installation project as quickly as possible. It is completely unfair that a group of people could deprive me of my right to receive mail by going on strike. What makes them think that they can do this? I hope that somebody can step in and clean this situation up quickly and efficiently. My safety depends on this.
I may have to get a new piano teacher. Miss Beadle is forcing me to learn a bunch of modern "popular" music. She has forced George Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue" upon me. I can't imagine what she will have me learning next. Jazz? Rock and Roll? This music has no place on a piano.
