It is during moments like these when I think the world is coming to an end.
Today, I wear eyeliner. I honor Our Friend Richard by this action. Tonight, he shines.
I took this picture of my dog:
She is a funny dog. Her tail wags, and when she runs, the pads of her feet go pff pff on ceramic tile.
I just ate Cheetos. They are a welcome snack: crunchy orange, taste explosion. My taste buds cheer and whoop and holler.
I hear a school bus, its large engine rumbling like that of a trash truck. I hear children calling. Our futures.
Perhaps the world will not end today.
