The automatic coffee maker does its job
that morning. The alarm clock, notsomuch.
Now in a rush, I carefully choose clothes
that say I am a responsible adult, a dependable,
reliable soul who will certainly be a major
asset to this here establishment, yessirree.
Make it through the first 3 meetings with a
smile, in style.Whew. Order lunch. Look down.
When my kids were infants, I liked to help my wife when they woke up for night-time feedings. Shortly after my 3rd son was born, I went out grocery shopping. When I got home, I looked down…one black shoe…one brown sandal… (photo at https://quest4peas.wordpress.com/2010/07/04/i-didnt-realize-i-was-that-tired/)
I like how the black and blue at the end suggests that the day bruised you.
This made me chuckle because I’ve been there, although both shoes were black, they clearly didn’t belong together.
