A Dull Weekend in March
Not real cold, but not springlike. I sat on the Dupont Circle fountain this afternoon after the gym. The temperature at the bank showed 56F, but there was a cold breeze bringing a chill. I'm not a big fan of these early spring Saturdays, as they bring out the extreme dullness in me. And I am just a bit bored.
The weekend started on a bad note, as I completely blanked out on my debit card pin number as I was getting cash to buy a drink at Halo last night. In my panic, I tried a couple of number combinations, forgetting that if I entered three or more improper pin numbers the bank would shut down access to my money. I think I exceeded the maximum number, because the giant steel teeth at the ATM quickly closed and I had to snap my hands back quickly so my arms would not be bitten off.
In reality, it wasn't that exciting. My card just didn't work. That's all. And now I have to go through all kinds of rigamarole to get the thing working again. I'm wondering if I can get through a week without any cash at all. I still have my credit card.
I think the reason I blanked out was: for a couple of weeks now I've been setting usernames and passwords both at work and here at home. All kinds of letter/number/character configurations have been forming in my head and I think my brain is just tired of Qz**&blotto.$RPM-zert. And why hasn't anyone figured out a method of keeping all these codes straight? We've got this entire information superhighway, and vehicles to move us through it, but nobody's figured out what the keychains look like.
