Later: I'm trying to remember what the heck we did. I know I went out on an errand. The appliance repairman came to look at the washing machine. Mom and Dad told me that he'd said the transmission of the washing machine was dead, and it would be cheaper to get a new washing machine. They went to look at new washing machines. Dad specifically said he didn't want me along, as he sometimes does. Mom usually wants my help if she's going shopping.
I gave Dad his birthday card.
I saw at 5:00 p.m. that R. had called at 4:00 p.m. asking if I could come get B. cleaned up. I called B. and said that we were about to go out for Dad's birthday dinner. B. said then he would see me tomorrow. Mom and Dad and I went to Longhorn Steakhouse. I enjoyed my meal.
In the evening, I watched this Monday's episode of Will and Jeff's Big Gay Fiction podcast, and the December bonus episode. I missed a few months of the podcast with not really having time to sit and listen to podcasts.
