Last week had some rough spots, but Friday was laughably bad. I did all kinds of things wrong – like dropping some cd’s down the stairs – twice, tripping over stuff, misplacing things – but it all started by being late to school because I couldn’t find my hat and gloves. (I need my hat and gloves! This is Nebraska, for cryin’ out loud.) After too much frantic searching I grumbled to Lloyd, “Forget it, let’s go,” and we went out to the car. I got in, looked down, and….
I took a picture, peeled it off the frozen pavement and turned it over to see all the ice. “You’re going to take a picture of that, right?” asked Lloyd.
“Hush,” I answered. “I know how to document misfortune.”
I was cold at recess.
