Appetite for Distraction – Another Day.

He wakes up. He feels good about this. He feels that today he will get his driving license. He should not feel good about this for today he will not get his driving license. He is not to know that later on in the day he will pass various tests and fill in various forms and be elated but then be told that one test he took earlier is now expired and he will need to take that test again and by the time he takes that test his verification will have expired and he will have to be reverified which could well take longer than the expiration date on the tests he has already taken which he will then have to take again and then he will be in jail and he will have no job and he will be deported so it won’t matter anyway. He doesn’t know this now in the morning when he is munching on bagels and drinking coffee and packing his bag and preparing for the day full of energy and hope after his morning run the first run of many mornings. He should never have woken up. He should have stayed in bed and gone to sleep.
