Kickass, the doorstop dog, says that while dog’s make statements with their peeing, it is not something that is normally part of human behavior. But yesterday while the keeper was so engaged he made several vocal profane statements when he heard a soft plop as a lens from his glasses fell into the toilet bowl. One of those tiny screws holding a bow to the frame had come out, and it was thus somewhere ordained that an appropriate time for the loosened lens to fall out would be as the keeper stood over the plumbing in a morning ritual. Things like this may happen to others, but the self-pitying keeper is convinced he is among the chosen who, for mysterious reasons, suffers more outrageous calamity than the rest. He blames the Republicans, which makes him feel only slightly better.
