I have completed a couple of very long days. Today I got to sleep in to 4 am which was nice. But I am done, Barkley was fetched and we made the long drive out of Dodge for a few days off.
I have to say though, as I passed the last row of strip malls on the way out of the Indy I thought. . . no matter how tired I am, no matter what's sticking to my shoes or my brain, no matter what conflicts will come of a days work, whether animal, vegetable, mineral or legal, I do know one thing for sure. -
I'd rather be here, tired, dirty but doing what I was meant to do, than the person wearing a bright yellow banana costume standing on that street corner holding up a sign for the cheap haircut place.
But you know, I honked and waved. For once upon a time, when I would take any job rather than go on unemployment, trying to work my way through college, I was the redheaded girl in the short dress and apron passing out hot dog samples at the grocery from a little skillet on the table, wearing an apron that said "Have I got a Wiener for You!"
You do what you have to to chase those dreams.
