One-of-those-days kinda days

Baring your soul,
Whenever whole,
Never thinking,
About the gaping hole.

Might sound a bit morose. Might even sound a bit wannabe-dark-mystical-and-trying-to-figure-out-why-I-have-black-lipstick-on. And no, I don't have black lipstick on. But, that is the image one gets of a gothic, punk-rocking teenager who wants to show that she or he is the quintessential rebel against society. Again, no, I'm not a teenager. Wow! So if I didn't have a life before, now I'm also too old to want to admit it, apparently. And so, the day begins on a bit of a damp note. Isn't it funny how even in the depths of self-abasement you take it upon yourself to be sensitive to how bad you make things sound? No? Oh well, I guess it must just be me then. That's ok. Some days you wish you were the bird, but most days you're the statue...so get used to it, eh?

But like I said, it's not that bad. I mean, so you woke up in the morning covered with mosquitoes, and you're feeling a little drained. So what? You still have to get up and get to work. No, you have to get up and get ready, and then get to work. How could you forget? But then, just as you take off that last piece of sweat-laden clothing and step into the shower, you find yourself at another impasse. There's no water to greet your exposed flesh. Now, cold, tired, naked and looking like a mosquito pincushion, you consider your next move.

Nothing comes to mind. Checkmate. So, this is how today's going to be...
