Apparently, the Universe didn't hear me

[or the Universe does not respond to threats]

Last Wednesday, I lamented the many pitfalls of June and asked, nay, threatened July to be a better month. So far, July is not being especially cooperative. I was going to try to drive on the spare (since it was a full-sized Goodyear and all) until mid-week when I could get some money and head to the tire store. But this morning on my way to work, the spare was making a funny noise and a motorcyclist driving alongside of me was looking mighty concerned. At the light he tapped on my window and told me "your tire doesn't look good. You might want to have it checked." So, I drove around the block and up Highland to the Just Tires store and waited for the nice young men to open the doors so I could get a new tire. They took one look at my tire and said, "Uh, yeah, your alignment is way off. Your other tire is ready to blow,too." So, that's two new tires at $103 each, and I had to promise them I'd come back on payday to get my alignment done. Mind you, the money I spent on tires was earmarked for my electric bill. A friend (Thank you!) paid my electric bill on his credit card and I'll pay him back when I get my check. Is it really only July 6th?

Dear July and the Universe in general,
Please accept my apology for that mild threat I issued on July 1st. I understand that you are in no way obligated to "shape up" on my account. If it pleases you, I would be most grateful if you were to ease up a bit on the awful things and maybe even send some goodness and positive humors my way. I will in turn make a concerted effort to be kind and considerate to others and to make the world better.
Thank you,
Laurie Ann

With that said, I think the Universe is going to be a whole lot nicer.

Gray skies are gonna clear up...

Yay! I asked the Universe politely to send you nice things in the mail, including cookies, and a devils food cake.
