Recall the story from my
previous diary, in which Jake is fired from his construction job for
testing positive for heroin use. As it turns out, Jake's family hired
an attorney and sued the construction company. Their case was persuasive, and in
an out-of-court settlement, the company agreed to re-hire Jake and pay
him the equivalent of two years' salary as compensation for wrongful
termination and harm to reputation.
What was the argument that Jake's attorney used to demonstrate that
Jake was falsely accused of heroin use and wrongfully terminated?
Jake has been working construction for a decade and a half - since he
was 18 years old. Today, while building forms for a concrete pour,
his boss calls him to the crew trailer. Just before he gets there,
his boss stops him and quietly explains that there is a woman from
human resources in the trailer. He says she's there because Jake
is being fired.
A mulberry tree in the backyard managed to fall onto two neighbors' garages. Seems like the odds of that happening are pretty low, but for me the Fates were willing to pen it in, probably to avoid looking predictable. How nice of them.

preparations to fear them.
As you may know, I love french toast. In fact, I just finished eating a large, fresh batch of it, prepared by yours truly. When preparing the recipe, I added 1 cup of milk, as usual, but as I poured in the milk, I noticed that it was lumpy. Nevertheless, I was hungry and decided to continue on, having no other milk available.
Now, having eaten the deliciously toasty and custardy fruits of that decision, I have a question.
