I topped off a winner of a week with a root canal today, and I have to say it’s amazing how often I smile at strangers. Honestly, you never realize it until you can’t or won’t smile at people because half of your face doesn’t work.
I was in line for the ATM and this random young guy standing behind me sidled up next to me and said hi. I said hi back and then he said “you’re really pretty”. I thanked him and then we stood there awkwardly awaiting our turn at the ATM. I looked like utter shit, so I don’t know. Maybe he was high or something.
We’re going out of town for the weekend and I’m so looking forward to it. Even though it’s only a trip to visit my parents’ place in the wild and stimulating Spokane Valley, it’s someplace different than here and I can relax and let my mom cook for us and fuss over me. I feel like I need a mom right now, you know?
I haven’t been around much because I’ve been stressed and distracted, and I usually can’t post when I’m feeling this way. I post when I’m happy and content, so hopefully I’ll be posting regularly again, soon, when I’m on the other side of this annoying stuff in my life. Don’t give up on me!
