We have all read about the ‘parallel universe’ but dismissed it as science fiction but is it?? after the past few weeks I am beginning to have my doubts. As I have mentioned before I have high blood pressure which is kept under control with tablets, and as long as I don’t get frustrated or upset its fine. I had been going along quite nicely until, that is, I had to deal with something unnatural, BUREAUCRACY!!! umm sounds familiar, have I been here before?
So what’s this got to do with a ‘parallel universe’? well this. In a parallel universe to quote Sheldon ” its possible that in one of them I could be a clown”. Therefore its possible that in one of them I could have no trouble with the IRS or Amazon they would be helpful not obstructive. So when I opened up my mail and saw not one but three replies from Amazon all of which were very helpful, I began to wonder if I was dreaming. Was I really here or in a dream state, would Bobby Ewing wake up next to me? Was I the reincarnation of Castle???? No, I was just me but something had changed. You see after months of trying to get an answer let alone a letter from Amazon, I now had assurances that one was on its way and they were more than happy to send it. They also informed me of other alternatives which I had not been aware of.
Being a writer and having the sort of mind that brings (shades of Castle) I have been trying to work out what has changed. What has gone right in the world, then I looked to the sky and saw my guardian angel, so now I know I am not dreaming. Thank you Amazon, be patient IRS, the letter is on its way AMAZON said so.
