my car was found! most excellent news. it was at the car dealer repair place where it was supposed to be. “they” had gotten confused about what kind of car it was. the tow truck driver was slandered! i am reassured to learn that the world is not as absurd as it was alleged to be yesterday. reassured to learn that my 2001 alero was not the target of absurd criminals. and i don’t feel so much as if i were abandoned to a bleak vortex of loneliness, or whatever i said yesterday—really, there are fates worse than sitting around in one’s pyjamas watching mystery science theater and reading about polygraphs all day.
