An old man walking his dog stopped for a second, and, seeing I wasn't dead, laughed. He laughed!
I got up, dusted myself off and walked very quickly around the corner, hoping no one was having their morning coffee in the house I'd just destroyed my pride in front of.
So, I got home and was sitting there typing, but something was off. My screen looked lopsided. It's a laptop, so I centred it and started typing again. But things still looked off. I thought, Maybe it's my glasses. Maybe they need a little clean.
So, I took them off and proceeded to clean the first lens. Huffed some hot breath on it, polished, and looked through it to see it was clean. Yep, all good.
Then, I huffed on the next lens and held it to my shirt, between thumb and finger, and rubbed. But my fingers touched. I held the glasses up to my nose and peered through the hole---to where my lens should have been. And, lo and behold, it was gone.
I put my glasses on again and, sure enough, lopsided screen. "So that was why it looked odd," I said to myself.
Anyway, a quick search revealed the lens under my butt where I'd originally found my glasses (I was working in bed), and when I popped the glass back in place and put them on again, everything looked normal. Yep, must be time for a coffee break, I decided.
As I passed my living room, my cat Scout was hunting something. He was quite agitated. His tail was whipping the plastic chair that belongs to my 5 year old, and he was digging around in the trucks.
I offered to help him, but he ignored me, so I wandered over and pushed the plastic box of cars aside and bent down to move the trucks so he could get in there to catch the bug. But as I moved everything aside, a pair of little black eyes peered out at me, and then....it launched for my foot. My first thought was that this little mouse was headed right for the leg of my jeans. So, I screamed, stumbling back, scaring my two cats, who both started fighting with each other then, and there was so much commotion as I toppled over the mess my sons had left, that a passer-by walked up to my door to see I was all right.
I looked up from the ground, surrounded by toys, my hair a mess, feet in the air, and said, "Yeah, just saw a mouse."
The man just walked away laughing. Laughing!
And that's my day. How was yours?
