Before We Begin

 
It’s
only Wednesday but I feel that the world is stirring about, kicking the leaves,
or fidgeting; the kind of feeling like something important or exciting could lazily
stretch out of its hole and come unexpectedly upon me.
Already
I’ve had a few surprises this week. On Monday, I sat in a comfy dentist’s chair
and listened to my poor hygienist share her prolonged desire to be a teacher
and that her current job wasn’t quite
to her liking. She then proceeded to ask me to open my mouth . . . 
Mom
and I then laughed our heads off as I tried to eat Chinese with a numbed mouth—it
really was quite hilarious.
Tuesday
turned out to be quite fun when I arrived at work and discovered that the group
I was serving wanted to eat an hour earlier; after gasping for air and
frantically checking and re-checking the menu for the next 3 minutes, I flew
into action. In the end there was a pile of dishes, a yummy dish of macaroni
casserole, and a happy, energized me.
Alas,
my energy did not hold out for the biology test which was to be taken later
that day. I’m afraid I forgot all about crossing over genes, alleles, and heterozygous
chromosomes.
So
here I sit, preparing my tea, watching the trees dance in the wind, and feeling
like something exciting approaches. I hope that before it does arrive, I can
enjoy a hot cup o’ chai tea and . . . change out of my pajamas.
What
adventures have come your way?
          ♥, Frannie
