Yesterday afternoon I took off early and went to the store to run some errands. This being the time of day during which kids are still at school and adults are still at work, most of the other customers were elderly, retired residents of the neighborhood. And playing on the radio over the ceiling speakers was a hit by Five For Fighting:

Standing there in line among the panicked octogenarians holding my shampoo and toothpaste, it made me realize that, while it sucks that the Mariners aren't going to make the playoffs, at least we're not all on the verge of death.
