And far from your hacienda
You must approach the task with an open mind ...
You can't fight time or circumstance
Or get help from old Pommeranz
Unless you breath deep to avoid the grind ...
A coin inside a seat belt slot
Will take all energy one has got
To pry it out saves embarrassment, face and pain
So pace yourself next time
When tormented by a dime
And appreciate the quiet and mundane.
(still a work in progress but you get my ten cents)
I dropped that actual dime into my seat belt slot. After spending several minutes dinking around with it to determine why it was not clicking shut, I spend two hours that I didn't have digging it out with a variety of tools and strategies.
