The question is valid.
I don’t know if I am Arthur or Martha today.
Wait…I don’t think I am either of them.
I have got used to not having a kid in the house.
Grandson was out last night.
Said he would be back between nine thirty and ten.
I went to bed at ten thirty.
Only to wake at midnight thinking….damn I hadn’t heard him come home.
So I lay awake and worried until 12:30
Then I got up and went to the kitchen.
On the way I saw his remote.
Damn kid must have come in like a little mouse.
And I wasted thirty minutes of worry.
One should conserve worry for important stuff.
I can just hear you all.
The boy is 18.
What the hell am I worrying about?
I have got worrying down to a fine art.
Leave me alone.
I am good at it.
The upshot of it all was I couldn’t sleep.
Played several games of scrabble on Facebook.
I am losing them all by the way.
If anyone wants to take me on this would be a good time.
Read a few blogs.
Eventually went back to bed and worried I wasn’t going to be able to wake up in the morning.
This was a valid worry.
Don’t think I have woken up yet.
I left for work about seven minutes late.
I HATE being late for work.
Every traffic light caught me.
Including a pedestrian one.
Why couldn’t they dodge the cars like everyone else?
I can’t even go straight home and hit my bed for a nap.
I need to go to the mall.
Have I mentioned I hate shopping malls?
Well, I do.
But I need by bloodpressure tablets.
Don’t want my brain to explode.
And some eyedrops.
My eye looks interesting.
Well, maybe not interesting but different.
It is a bit red and swollen.
And hurts when I blink.
I have never really stopped to calculate how often I blink.
Now it is time to go home.
You have a great evening/day.
