For example, let’s say you decide to go in to an extra day of work, starting earlier than you usually do.
Because you’ve gotten a parking ticket before, you decide to take the bus.
You decide to get off at a different bus stop instead of waiting 20 minutes for the bus to reach the stop by your work. Walking it in ten minutes is quicker AND is a form of exercise…aka DOUBLE AWESOME.
You’re not used to listening to music as you walk because your ipod hasn’t worked for a while… but you have an iphone now so you can listen to Bon Jovi, full blast, while dancing your way to work and drinking coffee out of your Wawa mug. (Yes, I am a Jersey girl. Go with it.)
You spend the whole day at work, about 10 hours, because you decided to stay late.
When you finally decide to leave work you realize you don’t have your apartment key.
You tear apart your bag. You tear apart your coat. You retrace your steps in FREEZING temperatures.
And… NOTHING. You now have to pay for a new key all because you changed your routine.
Oh, and when you bitch to your biffle about everything, she tells you, once you get in to your apartment, to watch Lily Allen’s “Fuck You” and dance. You listen to her, and decide to make a music video with your stuffed unicorn Chaaaarlie because you’ve reached a breaking point and it makes sense.
Oh, and then you order the pizza you won with the Super Bowl promo at Papa John’s, as well as a dessert pizza with the money you saved.
It could be worse.
