...about my weekend. My son went and wrecked his truck. The truck was his for 8 full weeks before he crashed it. Fortunatley he was not hurt nor was the person he ran into. Unfortunately the truck was damaged. Fortunatley we had liabilty insurance. Unfortunatley we didn't carry collison. Fortunately we have enough money in the bank to fix it. Unfortunaley it will take all of my annual bonus. Unforutunatley this will cut into Tiny Tim's Christmas present. Fortunatley we can afford a Christmas turkey. Unfortunatley it will be a small butterball. Unfortunately I am very stressed. Fortunatley I have enough leave to take a week off. Otherwise my weekend was just plain miserable. Fortunately, the U.T. Vols won.

Last year on October 2nd he crashed the family jeep while taking a Sunday afternoon drive. We benched him for about 9 months.

Bummer. Glad to hear he's OK.
Your post reminds me of a joke I heard many years ago...

A man fell from a plane.
Fortunately, he was wearing a parachute.
Unfortunately, the parachute didn't open.
Fortunately, he fell from the plane over a large haystack.
Unfortunately, there was a pitchfork in the haystack.
Fortunately, he missed the pitchfork.
Unfortunately, he missed the haystack.

What a mess. Glad nobody was hurt.

I thought my weekend was bad, but the worst of it was having to review 6 chapters in one night and then spending two hours the next day on hold with the IRS...

My weekend wasn't as bad as the previous weekend. I went to hunt wood ducks with my lawyer buddy. I got shot at and might near snake bitten. We almost got fried by lightning. I dropped my shotgun in the water as I was wading snake infested waters to recover a dead wood duck. Other than that I had a pretty decent time.
