usually amber and i watch a Sopranos or two and hit the hay once she starts snoring.
sometimes im the one who snores first.
then someone shuts off the tv, claps twice and the christmas lights and aroma therapy stops and the cats realize it’s the end of another broadcast day.
but yesterday was a good day for lots of reasons. so good that as she and i were walking home from dinner i spotted a Bird scooter right there on Sunset. i looked on my app to see if it was a decent reward to charge it up and free it in the morning and sure enough it was worth $11. so i took it and charged it.
amber usually works very early in the morning and often she kisses me goodbye and that will send me back to a peaceful slumber but sometimes it riles me up and i cant get back to sleep. because i hadnt slept well i had a hard time getting back.
so i watched tv and looked at my phone and fed the cats and considered releasing the bird.
but everything i did i did in slow motion and with the hope that i would get groggy and pass out for one more hour. for a half hour. for 15 more minutes. but no.
my mind was racing. so many ideas. so many weird thoughts, oh so many.
and now its a bit after noon and my body is like mmmmm nap fool. nap.
but now is when the world wants me.
and i want it.
