Now I know that the Lord saves His anointed; He will answer him from His holy heaven with the saving strength of His right hand. Some boast in chariots and some in horses, but we will boast in the name of the Lord, our God.
What novices we are at living on our own still! Just when I think, “Hey, yeah, I got this living on our own thing down! I can clean bathrooms, make dinners, vacuum occasionally, groom myself, and pay bills; I’m so set,” something comes along to remind me that no, in fact we still have plenty to work on. Like remembering that Sunday, April 3rd we “spring ahead” and that we need to go out at what feels like 8:55 but is in actuality 9:55 in order to meet the van for church.
But of course the van had probably come and gone by the time I turned on my computer at what I thought was 9:35. Imagine my surprise when I saw that time had mysteriously sped up and leapt to 10:35, five minutes after the service starts. But the good news is that means I get to eat lunch an hour sooner than I otherwise would have, so at least something positive has come out of this silliness. The other night we got three one-topping medium pizzas for $5 each, and I got a pineapple one from which I eat two pieces a day. Since neither guy in the apartment will get within six feet of pineapple, my pizza remains safe for as long as I take to eat the whole thing.
Which raises the question: my dear readers, should leftover pizza be eaten cold or hot?
