When You Need a Break

20191118_221158.jpgIt was a day that saw me rise from an uneven sleep that featured a few too many visits from a restless cat to be considered effective. It was a day that saw me eat the heels of the bread as my toast because no one else in the house would.

It started out strongly as I managed to finish reading a biography on Van Halen–pretty decent, but not a lot of depth. If you want to hear about relentless touring, drugs and alcohol, and sex with groupies, this book is for you.  I haven’t had a great year of reading on the bus, but lately, things have been picking up in that regard.

Sleep deprived or not, I had a long day of teaching. I did an okay job, but I was definitely fighting the effects for most of the day.  I certainly didn’t mail it in, but I am not sure if I was at my absolute best.

Then I had a long commute home with a mucus cough guy in front of me that also thought the bus floor was a good place for his disgusting germ laden coffee cup. He also proved to be a bit of an obstacle as my girlfriend tried to exit the bus.  The look she gave him (death glare does not do it justice) was incredible.

I got home and had some dinner. For dessert, I decided to have a dark chocolate kitkat.   I took in a few moments of silence before devouring the bar.  .I consider this Today’s Perfect Moment

About Anthony

I am: equal parts rebel, romantic and shockingly average Joe. a writer trapped inside of an ESL teacher's body. an introverted attention seeker. a teacher who hopes one day to be called "Captain, my Captain." an intellectual who can do some very dumb things. a person whose Japan experience, despite being so long ago, still exerts a strong influence upon him. a lover of books, music, beer, hockey and Pizza.

    The heels of the bread are better (although not as good as a Kit Kat).
