I think this has been a pretty shitty week all around for most people and I’ve been pretty down and out, however, I will Try to see things a bit differently because Sarah’s post made me feel guilty. Not like: oh my God, I feel like such an asshole, but more like: yeah life could be so much worse. I’m healthy enough to run, I have enough money to pay rent, and I have enough food to stuff myself stupid.
Tuesday night we were going to see Cabaret in Harvard Square. 1. I forgot the tickets. Not a big deal, we could just have them reprinted there. I’ve never forgotten tickets before, I’m a forgetful person but I’ve never forgotten anything important so it just made me feel like I was losing it. 2. For some reason this version of Cabaret was the most erotic version possible and my parents were there. If I wanted to see a strap-on-dildo it wouldn’t be in the same room as my dad.
Wednesday, I had a meeting and I’d been working on this presentation for like a week straight. I walked over to the client’s offices and in the lobby we realized that I left the presentations on my desk. It was bad, but luckily we were able to scuttle back in heels and suits in 80 degree weather to grab them and still be relatively on time although sweaty. I was in absolute panic-mode, and thank goodness it actually worked out Ok. Again, I’m obviously losing it.
I’m not exactly sure what is distracting my brain from functioning properly, but I’m sure it’s a combination of a million little things none of which are life threatening.
My husband came home from work last night –
Him: I almost ran over a man today.
Him: Down by North Station, he just tried to cross the street at a cross walk after the light had turned green! I honked, stopped, rolled down the window and he gestures to the cross walk like he had the right of way. I said: It says Don’t Walk, he said: I’m A Lawyer! So I said: You Are A Retard! Then I drove off.
In the moment after hearing this story I laughed out loud for the first time in three days. I’m not proud that I found that so utterly hilarious, but it doesn’t make it any less amusing!
