The last two days have had me playing the OOPS game. Yesterday in the morning, yesterday in the afternoon, and today at night. Here are the photos, followed by a quick synopsis of what they mean.
This photo is my toaster oven, after charring three pieces of challah toast. It sent smoke through my kitchen, but because I opened all windows and turned on the stove fan, the smoke alarm didn’t go off. Phew!
And then I ate those pieces of charcoal. They weren’t half-bad!
This picture comes from my office, five minutes ago. (Obviously, it’s hard to make anything out since it’s night-black… I turned off the lights to avoid the glare.)
What happened here? Naturally, what happened is that I was at the office late.
Yesterday, I tried to go to US Bank to cash a check, thinking that they were open until 17:30.
I arrived at 17:05, and the door says “Hours: Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm.”
D’OH! There’s my second OOPS in less than 24 hours!
So today, after a long day of prep work and office hours, I still had to do some more prep work to write a review packet for my Finite Math class. Nevertheless, I wanted to get to the bank, which had to be the further-away Educators Credit Union which was open until 18:00.
This wasn’t a problem, and afterwards I got groceries.
Getting back to my apartment and starting rice and marinating of salmon, I reached into my backpack to pick up the jump drive to resume my work with the prep…
…but the jump drive wasn’t in the backpack. It was in a USB port at the office!
So I grudgingly pedaled off to the office to finish that work…
…and now that I am done, I have to get back home and finish grading the Applied Math papers!
Whew, how annoying the OOPSes can be.
