My favourite part:
The best way to describe October Haze to those who have not experienced it is like having a really bad cold, but not being able to call out sick from your obligations. All around you people are enjoying themselves, laughing, playing, making plans. Meanwhile you’re on auto-pilot just trying to get through the day. You can barely taste your food. You can’t think about anything other than the task at hand. When people contact you with extraneous requests or information, even with the best intentions, your immediate reaction is something like ”AAAAAH!!! I cannot deal with this right now?!” Sound familiar?
This! ALL OF THIS!!! My sister called me yesterday evening to ask me about a globe that went with my grandmother’s hanging lamp that has been in storage, for a minimum of 5 years. I have no idea where the globe is, if it’s not with the lamp… and, as she was speaking to me, I was thinking, “if I called you about this, in the middle of your working day, I’d be bitched out…” but, here it is: Sunday night.. I’m at work.. I haven’t exactly had what you’d call a day off in at least two weeks… I don’t get to bed before midnight, sleep before 1 a.m., I’m the first one in the office and the last one to leave - and I’m there for a minimum of TWELVE hours a day… So… you want me to find a globe that’s been missing for five years? Hold on while I pull that out of my ass…. in addition to tomorrow’s turf and a list of phone banking numbers… Hold on - I’m trying to save your children’t education…. so, maybe you could cut me a little slack and not be a complete bitch to me when I’m existing on caffeine and I can’t smoke so no cigarettes, but I’m getting to the point where I really, really, really want one…. Chocolate.. I NEED CHOCOLATE!!!
But, Nancy, If I could HUG the stuffing out of you right now, just for understanding, I would…
