I wanted to stay in bed today

I wanted to stay in bed today. Even though, when I woke up all twisted up in the hoodie I bought the day I finished grad school, I was slightly too warm.

I wanted to stay in bed today. I got up, instead. I started a load of laundry.

I wanted to stay in bed today. There was nothing to pack for lunch.

I wanted to stay in bed today. But a looming deadline shook me awake, turned on the light, put a book in my hand.

I wanted to stay in bed today. My nail polish is chipped.

I wanted to stay in bed today. But I took two days off of work last week. But I rearranged my schedule to accommodate my hockey game on Monday night. But I am too contentious to call in sick unless I am really sick. Or interviewing for a new job.

I wanted to stay in bed today. Lucy and I had made plans to meet for coffee. I wasn’t late.

I wanted to stay in bed today. The weather was gorgeous. Unseasonably warm. I wanted to admire it from my bed.

I wanted to stay in bed today. I taught a computer class full of little old ladies. I helped a girl find a copy of The Color Purple. I had a cup of tea and it tasted foul.

I wanted to stay in bed today. My mom called and I assumed that someone had died.

I wanted to stay in bed today. I just wasn’t feeling it.

But tomorrow I will.
