I woke up a few hours before dawn and my mind was a roulette wheel of worry, mostly about all this dental work. This whole process has been drawn out for a year already, and I haven’t even begun. I can’t get the answers I need. Also on the Roulette Wheel of Angst: money, (lack of) jobs, (lack of) cats (sickness of), dating, (the horrible process of) my bank, (dishonesty of). But then a sentence I really need for my book popped into my head, and for once I had a pen and a piece of paper right there, so I could quick write it down before it disappeared. So, there’s that.
And a Loser’s Lounge tonight!
