I didn't talk to him about poetry, actually. Rather, I told him to give me my paperwork back after he let two other people (who had shown up after me) go ahead of me and left me waiting for 45 minutes past the appointed time.
An extra ten minutes I wouldn't have minded, if the two other ladies - who didn't seem to have appointments - just had quick questions, but 45 minutes!?!?!? No thank you. So I just completed my taxes by myself, online, at TaxACT for a measly $15.95.
Got all my monthly bills paid, and envelopes and checks ready for my state and federal taxes (yes, I owe - I always keep my withholdings pretty low, and end up owing about $1,000, which is fine by me).
Now that all the work is out of the way, and the rain is taking a breather, I think I deserve some playtime. Off to buy a pound of coffee beans, have a cuppa, and take myself to the movies.
See you there!
