Due to watching a television show late last night and still recovering from a cold, when I woke up this morning I felt like I had a bazillion pound weight on my head and tape over my eyes with a headache gluing it all together. I really thought that I wasn’t going make it to work on time, or at all. When I got up I was actually planning my apologetic text to my boss in my head “Sorry, I’m running late because a cat ran out in front and it looked adorable so I just had to pet it” or “What’s an appropriate way of saying that I feel like death and can’t come in today?”
As for the morning blues, I wasn’t the only one. Everyone else seemed to be suffering too. Traffic was pretty bad and my bus was ten minutes late and people were falling asleep during the ride. I thought I was going to miss out on getting my morning “help-me-oh-please-help-me-function” latté. However, via the magical powers of the universe, I was able to grab one and still make it to work before 9.00.
Can it get any better on a day like this? The answer is yes, yes it can. Not only are the magical powers of the universe awesome, but the people I met along the way were great and very understanding as well.
I’d like to thank the people who empathized with my terrible morning blues. I don’t think witnessing my half-brushed hair and experiencing my mumble-jumbled speech would have been a pleasant experience. Especially when I was trying to communicate “a large soy, carmel.. curmoll – CARAMEL, latté please” or “Date what’s again? I mean, what’s the date again?” and yet they were nice and they empathized with me.They just knew. The coffee guy said “so you know how it goes, eh?”, the bus driver smiled an empathetic smile when I tripped up the step and the second bus driver even wished me a “fun day.”
This all made my morning a little bit easier to get through. YAY!
