Me vs. daily life, round 47
January 14, 2014
It’s a little embarrassing,
the tiny frustrations I let defeat me.
I burned the onions!
The curry is watery!
Little girl canNOT trace the harp seal!!!
She is Very Frustrated!
And the scheduling software will NOT work properly!
So I call a friend.
She tells me a funny story
and makes me laugh.
After a few minutes, I return to my body.
I help the little girl outline the harp seal.
I use calm words, and eventually she does too.
Dinner is hot and salty.
I will deal with the calendar tomorrow.
Dear life, today it was a draw.
But tomorrow is a rematch.
Little girl is playing contentedly
with her dinosaurs.
The lights are soft and low and the dishes are done.
There are pink roses on my table.
I am wearing owl pajamas.
On second thought,
I’m pretty sure I already won.
