[Jandek] The worst day of the year and possibly my entire life

I had a bookshelf that was above a door collapse when building work
was being done in the room next door.  I narrowly missed by inches the
whole thing collapsing on me and it was traumatic to say the least.

Books and records are not living things in the plant/animal sense, but
when you have to pick them up from the floor and they are all twisted
and torn and covered in dirt you cannot help but feel terrific
sadness.  It's like they've been hurt and you haven't looked after
them properly.

The only good thing that comes out of these scenarios is that you
build better bookshelves next time...
