Life is simple, it’s just not easy.
When you haven’t ordered anything from Amazon but a package arrives with that insta-recognizable half smile logo.
Little-bursts-of-happiness start firing in your brain. Amazon! I have a package from Amazon!
You pick it up, all smiles, because the Amazon Fairies must know you’ve been a good girl.
But . . .
It’s not for you.
Crushing disappointment ensues, but you try to be brave, because, hey, you knew you didn’t have a package coming.
It still hurts, though.
Damn you, Amazon Fairies! Why couldn’t you have sent me something?!
You know the day’s going to turn out terrible when you’re contemplating have a glass of wine with breakfast.
When you willingly stay longer at work because the wi-fi hasn’t been hooked up at your new house yet.
When my quota is 2,400 words and I’m checking the counter at 322. Not a good sign.
I decided to give up wine for Lent this year. I’m drinking bourbon instead.
