Every time I open my browser and punch up the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette, my heart fills with pride.
I can’t help it!

You know you can’t beat that with a stick!
Yesterday, my bath tub stopped up again. There is something wrong with the plumbing between my apartment and the apartment overhead. But since today is a Sunday, I have to wait until tomorrow to ask the building supervisor to have the plumber work on the problem. This morning I had to take a sponge bath out of the bathroom sink. And the water from the sink (you guessed it) added to the standing water in the bath tub. Yesterday, I bailed the water in the bath tub into the toilet. There’s several inches of standing water in the tub right now. And it’s yucky….
I really should run the vacuum cleaner over the rugs in the bedroom and in my living room kitchenette. And I should fill a bucket with hot soapy water and wipe the linoleum floor around the stove and the refrigerator…
I’ve been sober for several days now. I should have a little fun money by Wednesday. I need a drink.
