Dear God

Dear God,

I know that many people have more pressing needs, and I don’t mean to be a pest, but  . . .

Please, in your mercy, give me my hearing back, and heal this damned infernal nonsense in my right ear?

And, if possible, make my allergies stop acting like the beginning of a cold.

I’ll do my best to break out of the funk and malaise, but I could really use some help right now.

In any event, please give me grace to bear whatever burden I must bear.

Amen.

Craigslist

I’m looking around on Craigslist for gutter and drainspout cleaning services.

And I’m finding funny mistakes in spelling, sadly.

“WHOLE HOUSE GUTTER CLEANING (1 STORY ANDEASY EXCESS 2 STORY )”  I’ve never though my second storey to be excess.  (And yes, I used the British spelling.)

“It’s overdo.”  I may have over-done, but I think this means ‘overdue.’

On a notice about cleaning out ‘eviction’ houses: “Clean debrees out of house and or contents in house just call for any information.”  Change one letter and we have Debrett’s Peerage, but I thank that point would be lost on the debrees cleaner.
