Not only did I wake up to find that my Orioles were crushed by the Texas Rangers 30 – 3. At Camden Yards. But when I went to the business center to check my email, two ladies were chatting.
Lady 1: My friends were supposed to go to Ireland, but he turned out to be crazy.
Lady 2: I don’t want to go down there. I’d be afraid of all the hurricanes.
Cheryl and Lady 1 stare blankly at each other. I think to myself, “I’ll have geography for 500, Alex.”
My grandmother may be right. The apocalypse must be upon us.
