…no thinking for a little while, let’s not try to figure out everything at once… (The National, “Fake Empire”)
Yes, I am behind on my work, and I have papers to grade, and my house is a mess, and I need to go grocery shopping, and I haven’t done laundry for almost two weeks, and I’ve been up for five hours and still haven’t showered. Maybe I don’t think I can afford to spent my day lying on the couch in a robe watching movies and bad television shows, but at this point I can’t afford not to. Heck, I’d go to the spa if I weren’t overdrawn at the bank with only $19 cash and payday four days away. I’m trying to tell myself it’s the poor woman’s version of flying to Ojai for a massage and pedicure.
