Today Is A Fabulous Day!
At least that's what I keep telling myself. The truth is, the evidence is decidedly mixed and it may be several hours before we can make a true assessment. Here's what I'm working with so far:
(Hi) The Celtics won last night, breaking the Houston Rocket's 22-game winning streak!
(Lo) It was 58 degrees yesterday afternoon...and now it's SNOWING. (I'm thinking of petitioning for a new groundhog; I need more assurance that spring will come...)
(Hi) I'm reading Merle's Door, an amazing book about a really cool dog (think Marley & Me, only this dog can hunt elk).
(Anticipated Lo) I'm afraid to finish this book. I think something bad is going to happen to Merle, or at the very least, he's going to die. I don't want Merle to die.
(Hi) I finally replaced those pitiful, leaking mugs I told you about with an assortment of lovely alternative options I picked up for almost nothing at one of the outlets up in Maine.
(Lo) I woke up this morning too congested to taste my coffee.
(Bonus Hi) The coffee stayed in the mug, rather than leaking out all over the counter, the floor, and THAT DOG'S head.
Now, some folks would say that if you have to look to the fact that your coffee mug is, indeed, holding your coffee (or mugging it, I guess would be the appropriate verb...to whatever extent a piece of ceramic can verb?) to determine the prevailing vibe of the day, you're reaching a bit beyond the accepted parameters for happiness. Grasping, I believe it's called.
I've decided I'm okay with that :)
