Last weekend I was seeing a whole bunch of places to live. I saw this place near downtown SF. As I was walking to the building, I noticed a police officer in one of those little 3-wheeled parking meter cars blocking traffic onto Market Street. I asked what was going on and he said that there was a Veterans Day parade going through because the holiday had been last week. I thought it was strange I had missed the holiday but then again, I don’t get a newspaper and haven’t watched TV in a while, and I sometimes don’t go out for a whole day. When I got home, I saw that my Outlook calendar said that Veterans day was on the 11th. I though, “That’s odd, I entered the date wrong. Oh well.”

Fast forward to today. Today is the day I sign my lease. I started out and went to the post office to pick up a package and… hey, the door is locked. Oh! today is Veterans Day! I went over to the bank I was going to get the cashiers check from and…. :-(

I request that Trav not trackback this article with a snide “Boys in Blue” article. ;-)
