Not A Dark And Stormy night
IT IS A WARM AND RAINY DAY. That’s better than a cold and rainy day, but not by much.
I find myself waking up in a body that has decided, without consulting me, to not work very well today. Unfolding myself like a cheap deck chair just to get out of bed. Hearing myself walk across the floor as the joints in my body crackle and pop in rebellion. Bending over to pick up the morning newspaper and looking around for anything else down there that can help make the trip worthwhile.
