I'm fighting depression. Mostly because I just don't have time for it right now. In two weeks, I will sleep all day and wear sweatpants and watch sad movies and tell everyone that I could'a been a contender.
But today, today I write and I do not feel like I am missing anything by not attending the graduate dinner tonight where my colleagues will receive so many awards that, had I been there, I would have had to help them carry them all to their cars.
No, I will not.
Nor will I think about the amazing food that will inevitably be eaten. Or the loneliness of having a husband who is part assistant principal and part baseball coach. Nope.
I will avoid the cesspool of self pity glimmering like those wavy mirages on hot desert roads just ahead.
What are you avoiding today?
