Of All the Things I’ve Lost…
… I Miss My Mind the Most
Pretty stressful day today.
Close friends having meltdowns all over the place wanting to vent on me today. When I have a rough day I vent on them occasionally - it’s only fair as a friend that I reciprocate now and then.
So, at about 5:45 pm I said, “Ernie, let’s go out for dinner.”
Went to a nice little local cafe – great food, a little exotic, friendly servers. Suddenly I thought – I’m positive I have a live session with one of my Book Mentoring groups at 7:00 pm – and it was 6:47 pm. Checked my phone it wasn’t on the calendar but I was SURE it was tonight.
Anxiously, I told the waiter, “We gotta go!!” paid the check and bolted out the door.
Got home at 6:59 pm, checked the official calendar and the call isn’t until next week. Sheesh! I could’ve relaxed and finished my Grilled Tilapia with Scampi Sauce and glass of Sauvignon Blanc.
And my quote for the day….
“Before you diagnose yourself with depression or low self-esteem, first make sure that you are not in fact, simply surrounded by assholes.”
