The weather was so good and warm yesterday. And I had the day off! Which never happens. So I was glad when I woke up thinking about this whole day I had that was completely free, and I got out of bed and stuck my head out the window, looking at the sky and the people, stretching and feeling better and better about everything. Sometimes people would see me and they would smile or laugh as they were clearly feeling as good as I was.
My boyfriend had woken up by then. “What are you doing?” he said groggily.
“I’m looking outside!” I replied. I remind every person that meets me of a golden retriever.
“I think you should come back to bed,” he said. And as he said that I was reminded that I was naked and I’d spent ten minutes looking out the window feeling glad and forgetting that I wasn’t wearing anything and all those people that were smiling and laughing were smiling and laughing at me and I ducked back into bed as quickly as I could, wanting to die.
