When Moses came near to the camp and saw the [golden] calf and the people dancing, his anger flared. He threw down the tablets and smashed them to pieces at the foot of the mountain. He took the calf that they had made, melted it down with fire, pulverized it to powder, then scattered it on the water and made the Israelites drink it.

Apparently there are 382 other people named Kathleen Ferguson in the US, but 524 people named Kathleen Sullivan. I became rarer by marrying!
Today CRL scheduled our annual company BBQ. Accordingly, I brought snacks, but no real lunch. Then the thunderstorms predicted for 5:00 pm rolled in around 10:30 am, the BBQ was canceled, and all us suckers who brought no lunch have two options: Buy lunch from the cafeteria; or go hungry. Even though they have no control over weather, I still feel a little cheated somehow. This just shows me for not listening to Ian’s advice, since he told me last night to bring a sandwich that would age gracefully so I would be prepared for the worst today or have tomorrow’s lunch already done. The moral of the story is that I should really listen to my husband’s advice — and never count on New England weather.
