Appetite for Distraction – Another Day


He wakes up. He is late. He doesn’t shower. He tries to be useful at work but his heart is not in it. He does a web search for the woman he lost and discovers that she was arrested five days ago for driving under the influence. This makes him sad and makes him wish that he could call her and ask is she is okay but he also knows that this is mental and that he shouldn’t do this. He talks to his brother about other things. He eats some macaroni and cheese and some chicken. He watches two episodes of Castle which is a show that he now loves. He reads an article by a man criticising another man for saying that Ulysses by James Joyce is a waste of a read. The article was a waste of a read. He was disappointed by the whole tone. He watches Futurama. He laughs. He sleeps.
