Day 956

Tired … and Bent


That just about says it.

The first part is easy. As for the latter — tonight I was talking with a friend with whom I attend a regular morning AA meeting. It’s 6 days a week and the two of us are there more days than not. I’ve not been there in several weeks because, well, you know, there’s a fucking pandemic and it’s deeply stupid to wade into a group of people. Especially a group that is prone to hugging, standing close, not being particularly mindful of things like personal space and the whole holding hands in a circle to say the Serenity Prayer at the end.

She said she thought she saw my car in the parking lot this morning.

I paused.

Wait, you guys are still holding the meeting? You are aware that the Governor has mandated a “stay home” and don’t gather in groups of more than 10, right?

Mind blowing that people can be so fucking stupid.

Today’s Gracious Gratitude. I am grateful for:
