The Gravity of This Situation #366Days Day 234

Some days just start out sideways. I got up this morning and planned to head to the office to get an early jumpstart on a day full of meetings. 

I got out the door and hopped in my trusty Beetle only to find I needed gas. Of course I knew this yesterday but had put it off.

So the stop at the gas station turns into a trip inside to grab a coffee and a bagel (which I rarely have). 

A full tank of gas later, I’m at my desk ready to work with one hand and eat my bagel with the other. Until it falls on my keyboard, thankfully landing cream cheese side up. 

“Whew!” I thought. I tossed that half back onto its wrapper and tried again with the other chewier half, which also fell on my keyboard…

DOWN. 

I just laughed and, some minutes later, began my workday at the usual time — typing on a very clean keyboard — after having eaten only half a bagel. 

Turned out to be a very good day otherwise.
