i had a day today
where everything i did
went just a little bit wrong.
not a completely crappy day,
just an irritatingly irksome day.

no one was injured,
nothing broke,
but each hour came and went
with it's own measure of 
disappointment and tedium:
curls that went flat instantly,
a forgotten appointment
{remembered at a most inconvenient time},
trouble with addition {as in, 2+2},
potatoes that were never mashed,
a bouquet of unmet expectations 
resulting in 
several flavors of guilt.
that sort of thing.

i feel fatigued.

to cheer myself,
i am throwing a little party.
just for me.
and you, too.
i am serving this, in a fancy glass,
and these
and some of this topped with this,
on a fancy plate.

i might even have one of these.

on this bummer of a day
