You’re Doing It Wrong

18 Nov

Sometimes we just don’t catch a break.

I was looking forward to this Sunday, a day I actually have a break from almost everything. A slow morning recovery, returning to find everything is still in order and nothing was lost in the night, a little gym time, a trip to the comic book store, and eventually a movie. Some junk food? Hell, why not? Skype with old friends? Sure, I’ve got time.

And then this happened.

New plan:

scream so loud the neighbors come to check on me, cry with an anguish and woe so real it’s primal, take all the Ibuprophen in the world, ice toe with New Mexico’s heaviest ice pack.

Return to bed- beaten, defeated, broken and small.

Sometimes we just don’t catch a break.
