My Wednesday Morning. A Short Novel.

  1. There was nothing particularly special about this Wednesday morning.
    Our alarm sounded at 4:35am as it usually does. I turned and kissed my Husband, and stretched a bit before getting out of bed. Routinely, I slipped into my workout clothes, splashed cold water on my face and ran the toothbrush across my tongue. Robotically, I grabbed my gym bag and purse, peeked in my daughter’s room, and poured my coffee, as I told my hubby that I loved him. I then grabbed my keys, kissed the cat, and headed out the door.
    There was nothing particularly special about this Wednesday morning as I breathed in the marine layer and entered my car. I chomped on my daily morning apple and listened to the antics of Bill Handle and the morning crew on KFI am as I drove to the gym, as usual.
    Yep, there wasn’t anything particularly different this morning when I entered Bally’s and greeted Raul at the front desk. On queue I waved to a few people I regularly see, and headed for the locker room. Again, there was nothing special about this morning when I stepped unto an unoccupied elliptical machine, as usual.
    After my workout and while in the shower, I smiled at the thought of this “easy” before a Holiday workday at the office and at tomorrow being Thanksgiving. The thought of Friday’s shopping, and Saturday’s Christmas decorating widened my grin.
    Nothing appeared atypical as I opened the gym locker and proceeded to dress for the day.
    It was a typical weekday morning… until… to my horror, I realized that for the first time ever I forgot to pack a blouse. Good grief!
    The gym is 5 minutes from the office and 30 minutes from home. Since I would be leaving the office early this afternoon, I didn’t want to call in late and have to deal with the Dragon Lady that is my supervisor. Out of the norm for a typical workday morning, I drove around frantically hoping that at 6:50am I would encounter a store already observing Holiday hours. I needed to buy a blouse or sweater, or a dress, or a blazer…something!!!!
    No luck. Target was closed. Ross was also closed, as was Sears.

    So here I sit at my desk in a pair of slacks and high heels and a icky sticky Def Leppard concert t-shirt that I sweated in for 45 minutes this morning.
    I also need to alleviate myself from this morning’s 5 cups of coffee but 1- I’m embarrassed to walk over to the ladies lounge in this interesting ensemble, and B- I’ve waited much too long to visit the lounge that I’m not even sure that I can walk upright.
    I hope everyone’s having a better Wednesday morning that I am….:shame:
  2. I think we deserve a picture of this ensemble :sneaky:
  3. I'm just trying to picture your nice dressy slacks with a Def Leppard T-shirt :roflmfao:

  4. Yes, I finally got up and took care of business:okay:.
    At lunch I drove to Target and bought a top. :s
