From Beth (although, I like to think of her as Tikki):
OK, I was saving this for the next time I can’t come into work, but I suppose you can use it to:
Because, while driving to _________ I hit an octopus and had to wait several hours before they could get a tow truck.
(Well now, I’ve just wiggled you into another “why” – “why were there octopi in the road?”, so I’ll give the excuse for that one too)
I imagine they were with the penguins.
April had one, too that went into my nasty meth habit that I was driven to (I might have the habit wrong – so many habits, so very few brain cells)
Don’t forget, it’s never too late to submit your answer to “Why?”
