I was feeling somewhat disconsolate, like no one would ever be my friend at work, when suddenly a woman poked her head around the cube wall. "There's a PARTY downstairs,for Earth Day!" she said. If you remember what branch of the government I work for this will make sense to you. So the other woman who is a scanner said "Let's GO!" and down we went. We tried to find the food but it was not forthcoming, so we ended up going back upstairs. On the way, though, we talked about our kids. I felt very heartened. Life was getting better.
And after work I went to Sears and bought a washer and dryer. Yo yo. Score. Now I"m drinking wine and contemplating bed.
