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.



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.
