Benny’s burritos plus Caddyshack equals a cure-all for the depression of a rainy day.
For me, the others are:
Speed Scrabble with the windows open to invite in the sound and smell of drops
Crossed-legged, couch cushions on the floor in a poorly made fort
Feeling perfectly justified in skipping Ab class and poor posture
Fantasy vacation planning, refreshing the prices and hoping the numbers go down, even by one dollar
Tivo and the idea of having to “make-up” shows as an assignment( Planet Earth at the top of the list)
The memory of baths, the reality of a long shower, moisturizer that smells of mangoes
Homemade manicures and peeled cucumber masks, cotton balls, cotton clothes
Delivered snacks, half bottles of wine, forgotten videos and new inside jokes
The idea of daily hospital corners and a folded blanket on the bed but never getting up to actually do it
The following New York-based course catalogues and guides: Parson’s, SVA, The French Culinary Institute, Time Out, a fresh highlighter and a mission
Found journals, lost to-do lists, debit cards with overdraft protection
Two popsicles left in the freezer and four hours left of the night
What are yours?
