Great Day

Some days really bite. You know the ones - usually preceeded by a sleepless night, got to be at the office for an early meeting, got to stay for a late meeting, deadlines stacking up, car runs out of gas, it's either 100° out or raining or both, the IRS decides to audit you...

OK, OK, OK, I've never been audited, and I haven't had a vehicle run out of gas since 1984. But you know exactly what I mean.

Take that day, turn it around 180°, and that's the kind of day I've had. And damn, it feels good.

  • A full 8 hours of sleep.

  • No meetings until a leisurely 10am - plenty of time to enjoy a big ol' cuppa joe.

  • Bail out of the office at noon. Noon. Noon!

  • Drive to the ballpark and catch the Bulls vs the Toledo Mudhens (I'll bet you thought that was a made-up team, didn't you?)

  • The weather? High 70s with lots of big fluffy clouds providing periodic shade.

  • Game ends in time to beat the after-work drive-time traffic.

  • A quick stop at the Home Depot to drool over power tools.

  • Chinese take-out for dinner.

Hey, it's just 7:00pm and I'm done.

I could do this every day. Too bad I have to mow the lawn tomorrow.
