I was feeling low this week after coming down with COVID, having to isolate at home. A good friend cheered me up with her text:
I’m going to give you the short version of my day today.
I had a dentist appt for a crown.
The battery was dead on the car.
Rick was in Chicago.
I called an Uber.
The Uber texted that it would be 45 minutes to pick up.
I walked to the dentist (not far at all).
The elevator broke down between floors and I was stuck.
I was eventually unstuck by mechanics that were already in the high rise working.
I get numbed up in the chair and the dentist is working away.
There fire alarm goes off and all 20 floors are evacuated.
I return afterwards to have the rest of the work completed.
I take the stairs down this time and get locked in the stairwell but get out when someone with a pass card takes the stairs for lunch.
I walked home and decided that although it was a weird day, it could have gone much worse.”
I too decided that although it has been a weird week, it could have gone much worse.
