Who was the first person I saw
today in the last 24 hours?
My dog, he sleeps at my feet but he is not a person so I guess that doesn’t count. My husband then, but it was the back of his head so I did not really see him either. I stumbled out of bed to go and make the doughnuts… ergh, I mean wake up the perfect spawn. So it may have been him as I have that parent disease all parents get where looking at their kids is fucking magical. But I was really eff’in sleepy – so it may not have been either.
Maybe it was;
- My reflection in the mirror as I pondered whether I should brush my hair or not? (it was a half not).
- Or perhaps the profile of someone on Facebook as I looked at it while I waited for my coffee to finish doing that thing it has to do before it becomes drinkable.
- Or maybe it was the dude that walks down the street in the mornings when we head off to our daily doings (me – work, perfect spawn – school).
This seems like I was rather mindless. Perhaps that is the greater truth.
