Beat

I resolve to be better. Today I am better than yesterday. Whatever went down, whatever happened, whatever I didn’t accomplish, today is an improvement over yesterday. I one-up, outpace, and trump myself. I’m better looking, better acting, a better being. Isn’t today better than yesterday? I ask the cat. I always ask the cat important questions. Don’t I look better than I did yesterday? Isn’t it an exciting time to be alive? The cat nods. I’m pretty sure he does.
