Mine was allright. I am still going strong with the mimicking normalcy plan. I guess my rough logic is that if your car doesn't start, you put the car in neutral, have your friends push it forward till the motion stimulates the engine into starting. Doctors on hospital shows revive patients they've just lost by mimicking the heart beat till the heart starts beating on its own. So here I am sticking with my plan and keep breathing life into our existence till things come back to life.
No one's getting much sleep around my house these days. So when I say I have no clean clothes left it is no exaggeration or no humble way of fishing for compliments -- you know, like those Chinese housewives who keep insisting that their dish is "nothing special" just something they "whipped together in a haste" but "is no good" when you and I both know that they took two days off work just to have enough time to properly marinate the crab and get every intricate detail perfectly right.
In a futile attempt of finding a clean shirt this morning I came across this thing in the back of my closet. It's about ten sizes too big so I was just about to cut off the bottom 10 or so inches with a pair of scissors, (you know, tuck the reminder in my pants and no one has to know) when it dawned on me that if I tied a belt around it this whole mess would look totally deliberate or better yet, if I tied two belts around it people might even think I am one of those fashion forward women who know exactly what they're doing. I wish I had some big necklace handy in my car but all I could find in the glove compartment were these earrings (in my humble opinion, bold pieces of jewelry are a great way to persuade the world that your get-up is pre-meditated). And you know what, as soon as I made my grand entrance into the bank this morning, the manager immediately bumped me up to the top of the line, had me sit down in one of those comfortable leather armchairs and handled all my transactions personally. It's all about the accessories I tell you.
Nevertheless, I am gonna do some laundry tonight. At least a few pairs of jeans and a couple of shirts.
Thanks blog for bearing with me.
Until next time.
