Appetite for Distraction – Another Day.

He wakes up. He has no car so he has to walk through the cold but it isn’t cold but he still manages to run and miss the bus no point in even running he was never going to make it anyway he isn’t Superman. He eats his lunch. He does some drawing and some colouring. He hasn’t done it for years but he started at the weekend. Drawing cartoon animals and cartoon George Washington. He is enjoying himself and feels like a child again and his back aches because he has been doing it for too long sitting in a bad posture at his desk then he realises he has to do real work so he does real work. Then he goes home and eats some left over Chinese Food and some macaroni cheese and some salad all in one bowl. It tastes like victory. He is reading more of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. He is enjoying it more and more. He supposes this is why it has become such a hit with people who read. He lies in bed for a while and then animates a hand drawn flag of the United States of America which he finds himself happy at. Then he animates a whale tearing itself off a piece of paper. This day is a good day. He falls asleep with the light on and wakes at 1am to Lawrence O’Donnell talking.
