The Diary of a Nobody: Sparrow deals with someone who couldn’t be bothered to read his “Ring Bell For Service” sign. Today’s Diary.
It’s a guy, probably a few years older than me, short, muscular with a biker shirt and biker hat on who looks like grunting might well be his preferred form of social interaction…However, he’s able to form the words required to ask me if I had any smokes lying around…He added he didn’t bring any this trip because he didn’t think he would need them, but his goddamned old lady was pissing him the f*ck off…He nodded knowingly at me, too, adding that I probably knew exactly what he was going thru…I shrugged and nodded in solidarity.
It’s Sparrow, an average man passing an average life.

In 1919 – The 19th Amendment to the Constitution, guaranteeing women the right to vote in the United States, is sent to the several states after passage by the United States Senate. The House had passed the Amendment on May 21, after several previous votes in both houses had failed. On June 10, Illinois, Wisconsin, and Michigan became the first states to pass the Amendment and the 19th Amendment became part of the constitution on August 18, 1920, when it was ratified by Tennessee.
In 1911 – The Cincinnati Reds defeat the Boston Rustlers – later the Boston Braves and now the Atlanta Braves – 26-3. The Reds had 23 hits, including five doubles, three triples and a home run and all 13 players who played for the Reds scored, then a record for the most players scoring at least one run for one team in one game in major league history. The record is now 15, done by the Atlanta Braves in 1999.
In 1966 – Percy Sledge is at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for the second of two consecutive weeks with When a Man Loves a Woman. The week before the song had wrapped up spending four weeks at #1 on Billboard’s soul chart. Sledge would return to the Hot 100 four more times and to the soul chart eight more times, but When a Man Loves a Woman remains his only #1 song. In 1991, Michael Bolton took the song to #1, making the song one of ten in the Rock Era to go to #1 twice, and one of nine to do so by different artists.
…for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe.
