Another Day In Paradise

Today was one of those days that took all of the energy from you. Even though all you want to do is fall asleep, you still have to get the boys home and unpack from the weeks vacation before you can rest. Tomorrow is a work day and after work there won't be time for a meal because you are the coach of the little league team and it is an early game.

Sometimes the customers are nice and a pleasure to serve. Sometimes they are the devil incarnate and there is nothing you can do to make them happy. You doubt they have ever had a happy moment in their miserable lives. Your day didn't start off very well either with an argument about something stupid that made you cry. Both of you should have known better, you do know better and it will be a long day of worry, fearing that that stupid argument will continue tonight. You hope not...

You know that you should have gone to class and not skipped out with Jeremy, but he can be pretty persuasive. Maybe you will be able to do a make up test if the teacher buys that you were sick and not going downtown to score. There just hasn't been a lot around lately and with the way school has been going, you need to forget shit for a while.
*************************************************************************************************************************

I don't know why I like to have coffee every day, I just do. My buddy and I don't have anything new to tell each other and just rehash all of the old stories and complaints. It takes a big hunk out of my day, but really I'm retired and my day is just a big hunk of nothing to do anyways. I should be able to waste my time if I want to...shouldn't I?
*************************************************************************************************************************

He's the little brother, so why should I have to look after him? I never get to do the things I want to do and it's his fault! I was busy playing on the iPad, it's not my fault he got hurt. Mom says he will be alright in a week or two and when I gave him a hug this afternoon, he hugged me back. I am sorry he got hurt and I really like him...
*************************************************************************************************************************

Every day unfolds as it should. Every life is lived as it should be. There is happiness, joy, anger, frustration, love, hate, ambivalence, ignorance and just existence. So ends another day in paradise.
