We went out to an up & coming little wine bar with the Luces last night - I say "up & coming" because it's not quite there, but we know of a big change that's taking place very soon that should pick things up...but it shall remain nameless for now. Anyway, as always, we had a great time & even ended up winning (yes, I said winning) some free wine. You see, there was a wine challenge thing, & I placed first, Doug & Lucy tied for second, & Mr. Luce came in third! That's because of how cool we are & the fact that we're all so very smart. Heh. Yeah, we're smart, alright...we didn't get to bed until 11:00. For people like me & Doug that get up at 4-freakin'-30 a.m., that's just downright dumb. Oh well.
Both of us were tired & unmotivated this morning. I did a little laundry the other day, but not enough, so my wardrobe choices were rather limited. My closet didn't have anything that I felt like wearing, so I fished around in the dryer & found one of my favorite work tops. (Yes, I have work clothes that are for work only. I don't know why.)
Me: "I think I wore this pink sweater on Monday. I think I don't care."
Doug: "Apathy can be very liberating."
Doug's right. I'm wearing the pink sweater.
I was sitting at my desk this morning, nursing my ever-essential coffee, when one of my pals walked by.
My Pal: "Hey. Happy Friday! You're looking exceptionally...tired today."
Me: "Yeah. Did your kid do your hair this morning? That's quite a look you've got going there."
(As an aside, I'm pretty tight with this guy & this kind of banter goes on a lot.)
My Pal: "Ha! No, I only slept for 2 hours last night."
Me: "Huh. What the hell's up with that?"
My Pal: "Work. It's killing me."
Me: "Ambition will do that to you, my friend. You should try apathy...it's quite liberating."
Ladies & gentleman, my husband, the philosopher.
