autumn air

Today sure felt like a Monday. It was a Tuesday, but what with the three day weekend it’s close enough. I ran the fastest mile of my life today. Which surprised me, considering I haven’t really moved in three months. It took me an hour and forty minutes to get home from the volleyball game, which I left early. I had a late dinner, wrote some e-mail, talked to Zoe for an hour, and now I’ve got to read the last four pages of the Odyssey before falling asleep. Which I had better do soon, or I’ll regret it at 6:30 tomorrow morning. I woke up before the alarm today. It was impressive. I just realized I didn’t blink for a while there, writing that. In Subway today I was just staring off into space feeling totally crazy. It was like an out of reality experience, if you can imagine what that might feel like. Nothing seemed like what it actually was, all of life at that moment (ie, the building, the people, the weather, the town) was exceedingly weird and didn’t feel right. I actually kinda enjoyed it. I’ve got to take a shit. Appropriate, since there’s not much food left in the house. I hope someone goes to the grocery store soon. I don’t have any money to buy food or gas at this point. For a snack a few minutes ago I had what was left of the Honey Bunches of Oats. Most of the cereal boxes in this house right now are at the point where there’s hardly anything left, so that you don’t want to throw it out but there’s really only half a bowl of crumbled flakes left to feast upon. So I ate half a bowl of nasty, pulpy cereal-derived paste. It wasn’t so bad. I’ve got to go figure out what “harangue” means, before taking that shit. I’m beginning to look forward to this bathroom break. It’s going to be a fun time. That moment, when it suddenly kinda hurts and you’re like, “Shit!” and suddenly you’ve taken a dump and you’re like, “Crazy!” Well, no it’s not really like that at all, but my plans to describe in detail what it was like to take a shit got stopped by the more intelligent side of my brain. Yea that’s enough of this.

Laying on my back on the concrete bench, looking up at the overcast sky between the frame of two trees that were just starting to get their hints of autumn color, I thought, “It’s getting colder.” That was the deepest thing I had thought of all day.
