not every day can be all unicorns and rainbows. this morning on the walk to the train, i stepped on a doo log left by a large neighborhood dog. i have blisters on both of my heels from the boots i wore yesterday. my right ankle is sore, probably from the rigorous weekend hike. oh, and tamari from my lunch container spilled in my bag. to top it all off, i was offered a free bible, twice, before entering the gates at the bastion of liberalism where i work. a mutiny was underway when i arrived in the office. then, i somehow messed up my sudoku puzzle with half of it left to go…and it’s an easy one. it’s not even 10 o’clock yet! i hope this not an indication of more trouble to come. all i can do is laugh about it, none of these bumps will completely ruin this beautiful fall day.
it could be much, much worse.
i could have fallen in the dog poo or gotten it on my jeans and then be smelling it all day. the blisters will heal, and i don’t have to walk around or stand all day. my ankle is less sore now than it was before. i can start the puzzle over or move on to the crossword. only a little tamari leaked out, the bag can be washed, nothing was ruined. there are worse things than being offered a free bible, i suppose.
