I'm on a train that’s bound for San Jose and there's music in my ears and the bluest blue sky in my eyes and today also happens to be Friday.
A numbered list.
FaceTime calls with my sister
"Cut to the Feeling" by Carly Rae Jepsen
Someone on my team called in sick and the sky was doling out drizzle so I splurged on a Lyft to work this morning and when I climbed into the car my driver, a spunky, middle-aged woman named Denise who currently resides in Sacramento but grew up in Flint, told me I was her first ride of the day and I said I hope I can help make the day a good one and she responded
"Hon, good days are the only kind of days I have."
When I grow up I wanna be Denise.
Below is a list of five things that make me happy because this day sucked.
- Burger King's Zesty Onion Ring Dipping Sauce
- The 'FaceTime Screenshots' folder on my laptop
- Mindy Kaling
- Musical theater overtures
- Sweater Swap
