And oh what a Monday it was. It all started out with the snooze button. I pushed it 5 times this morning, which meant that I started the day and hour behind schedule. And when I finally got to work, all the free parking spots were taken. So, I parked in 2 hour parking - intending to come back in a couple hours and move my car - and promptly forgot. 4 hours later, I suddenly remembered my poor car which at this point had a giant parking ticket tucked under its wiper. I moved it anyway and knowing that I fully deserved the ticket made my way back to work. But, not so quick, on my walk back I was stopped by an old man - probably drunk and possibly homeless - who proceeded to tell me how beautiful I was and that I should take that as a real compliment coming from a black man. Then he showed me the dimes that he had just found on the sidewalk and said that I had made his day. He was a real charmer and It took some finagling but I finally managed to let him down easy and get back to work.
Later at work, I found out that the internship that I had been all but promised at EPA is a no go. Back at home, I'm feeling all uneasy and anxious-like - maybe I'll self medicate with some chocolate fro-yo.
