(not me, but I had the same face when looking in the mirror this morning)
ever have one of those mornings
when you wake up very suddenly
notice it’s not dark outside
like it always is
when you wake up to go to work
you text your work partners
panicked and feeling guilty
say you’ll be there asap
wondering why you didn’t hear your alarm go off
thinking about how you can get ready and do a make-over in 5 minutes
then begin to text your bosses to say the same
only to realize in the middle of typing
that it is
have to type again
to apologize for waking everyone up?
“forgive me if I sleep until I wake up. “

to say that the detroit lions
have not played like a top tier team in a long time
is an understatement.
I found this display
in the middle of a big box hardware store
with no explanation
and loved the artistic statement it made.
this still somewhat hopeful
and ever loyal fan
has been waiting quite a long time for a win.
that is strong and that is funny.

(not me, but a tiny brit/ fellow lover of butter,
who began by trying to make pancakes with his brother,
before it all went happily off the rails
and he ended up
covered in butter with a butter shampoo.)
when in maine….
apparently the warm, melted butter
was waiting to ambush me
it went perfectly
with everything I ate
due to my obvious positive response
and unapologetic joy
they just kept serving me
things that could go with it
and at one point
(I didn’t even notice)
the protective bib I was wearing
somehow fell off and was under the table
and I found myself
quite literally covered in melted butter
from the tips of my fingers
to just above my elbows
with collateral damage all around
and it was magnificent.
It took me years to figure out that you don’t fall into a tub of butter, you jump for it.

such an interesting mix at lunch
sugar cookies, grated parmesan cheese, and red pepper flakes
it made me wonder a bit
when I inquired I was told
the cheese and peppers were there
because they were serving Italian food in the kitchen
and the cookies were there
because this was their new location
and I kind of loved
the ‘no logical reason’ reason for the combination
it made it even better
and why not after all?
“things have to be funny first, and if they want to have a point, that’s awesome.”
