I hate mornings. Every day I deal with the same shit, little "fuck you's" left on the counter or in the middle of the floor in the form of objects that I can't see or which are in unanticipated places. Making breakfast is a trial every day. I have the same meal every day, two biscuits, a slice of cheese, two pre-formed egg patties and the same of sausage. It's easy, it's the correct number of calories and carbohydrates. While it is not exciting, it is easy. It's a trial every day. I never know if I'll have biscuits. I never know if the bag I keep 'em in will be open or sealed and whether they will be soft or hard as rocks. There may or may not be cheese. If I have to bake biscuits, which is not a big deal at all, I may or may not have a baking sheet. I may or may not have to scrape some unidentifiable burned-on substance from it. The oven may or may not be on. I'm guilty of leaving in on myself, but others help me.
Getting to the kitchen in the morning is a trial. There will almost always be something in the floor in an unexpected place, whether it is a sleeve trailing off a chair or a table in the middle of the kitchen. Once I've avoided death in negotiating the hallways I clean off the counters (there are always dirty dishes) and unload the dishwasher so that I may load it up again.
I'm going to enjoy living alone.
OK, it's venal and nasty. Sue me. You try waking up to the same crap every day. I've complained and each time I make my feeling known the guilty parties sincerely repent their behavior. They don't stop the behavior
I can't see the floor. I do really well around the house and away too, if I am familiar with the location. People just don't seem to realize how much difficulty I have with unfamiliar settings. I can't seem to convince them that leaving things in my path is a potentially lethal practice.
Well, I'm going to enjoy some aspects of living alone. The transportation hassles will be a raging pain. I don't relish existing on cabs, but I see it in my future. I am looking for an apartment that is near to my work and within an inexpensive cab ride of a grocery store. I'm looking for other qualities in an apartment, but that is a topic for a later time.
