I Had a Good Day

Despite slipping and skittering all over the ice covering my back yard and nearly falling on my tail, I had a good day.

At first, I had my doubts. After all, I still had to go to work, but responsibility prevailed and I decided to be a productive member of society. So I crawled out of bed, cut myself shaving and lurched to the car.

It was cold and breezy, but the sun blazed low in the eastern sky - making my commute that much easier this morning (I drive away from the sun).

Traffic was light. Usually, I sit on the freeway, helplessly fuming at being forced to a crawl. Why wait in line to go somewhere you don't want to go?

A cinnamon crunch bagel, soda and several finished projects later, the morning ended, and it was lunch time.

Jones and I went to the buffet at the Casino Queen, and after a light lunch, we decided we had enough time to hit the casino. The Wheel of Fortune treated me well - the karmic scales are truly in balance - and I walked out $20 richer (although I would have liked to walk out with the $900 the woman at the machine next to me won - I can't imagine how long she was playing that game).

I returned to work only to learn that my doofus boss had his ass chewed by the big boss - because he didn't heed my advice on a project he worked on and it fell apart. Karma was truly on my side today.

I left work, had a quick drive home, and I finished reading "To Kill a Mockingbird". Now I'm relaxed, relatively stress-free and ready for the weekend.

It's a good night.
