Today has been one of those strange days where something wasn't right from the beginning, like there were errors in the program that had to be fixed.
For me, it started with a dream that was incredibly disturbing and upsetting. That was made worse by waking to Gideon howling as if her were in pain at 5 a.m., only to find he was just howling at the stray cat that keeps visiting the back door. I was all out of sorts right from the beginning.
Even after I got up for real a few hours later, getting out to bike never clicked, and my typical morning duties seemed to take forever. Finally something positive happened just before dinner time when Jeff P. invited me out to meet him. But there was no hitting a groove today.
Diana didn't have a very good day either. It started with a lack of hot water in the morning, work issues during the day and then the hotel thinking she had checked out or otherwise being incompetent.
Days like this don't genuinely cause any real harm, but they throw just enough weirdness into life to catch you with your pants down. And that's only fun if the right people are there. This was not one of those days.
