I got woke up by the damn phone again this morning, of course. For the first time in recent memory I was on track to get more that the 4 to 6 hours of sleep I seem to have only been getting for the last several months.
So I staggered into the kitchen without my glasses on and proceeded to nuke a cup of yesterdays coffee while I went and took care of business.
After the DING of the timer went off I grabbed my crap and headed out back under the umbrella to fall into one of the stadium chairs and proceed to light up a smoke.
My daily ritual when it isn’t pouring rain.
As I was sitting there staring off into space trying to get my shit together, I kept seeing something move out of the corner of my eye.
It was hauling ass too, whatever it was.
I would get a little glimpse of a red molecule with many legs buzzing back and forth along the metal rim of the glass table. I’m not joking when I say it was moving out, it took me two solid minutes of trying to keep the little bastard in my view finder to get a picture.
Blurry because they are action shots, it would’t hold still.
There was two of ’em.
For scale, this dinky little Aphid strolled by too and they didn’t pay it the slightest attention, probably because it was too big for them to attack.
That is the glass table top, notice the individual grains in it.
So life goes on day to day, completely ignoring and oblivious to whatever the hell Kim Kardashion is or isn’t wearing.
I think maybe we should take that perspective ourselves.
