But It Was Too Late, She's Come Undone...


I didn't see the wall coming.  I had every intention of serving my time at the women's prison.  I mean of going to work.  Sure it was a holiday but in retail that only means you're definitely working.  Sure P had a three day weekend and I was green with envy as I rode in the bitter cold in the wee hours of the morning on Sunday while he lay sleeping.  But I had accepted my fate.

But Monday brought more snow just in time for the morning commute. The day before brought..oh, musta been a million screaming kids guessing by the volume they reached and yelling angry customers, while crappy pop music played overhead like the soundtrack to a bad 80's movie. I brought an overload of hormones to the mix along with a stinky disposition. I came home from work a spent, limp lifeless shell in bad fitting skinny jeans.

Upon waking, I deduced the totality of the entire mix of events could only mean one thing - personal day.    I clearly was in no shape to converse with humans.  I had hit a wall.  I had come undone.

After I released myself from my 7.5 hour sentence by calling out, I realized the snow was actually quite beautiful and I was able to have a few laughs and rustle up some breakfast for me and the Pnut.  It turns out the wall was my friend.

Just nod if you can hear me. Is there anyone at home?
