Luckily, my calendar is completely clear today.
I can go longer if need be, but the feeling of not controlling the rest of my day sucked.
Fortunately, I was able to grab a sandwich on a run between meetings.
I almost don't remember what a clear calendar looks like, and this is the "slow" time of year.

Today, I only have three, so I'm not very important today.
I only have two today, so my importance downgraded overnight!

Yes, pB, the guy who eats more than once a day, like a normal human being, is the weird one here.

It had not.
Okay, maybe a little while because I forgot to bring it inside the last time I wore it, but the weather has been mild and I park underground during the day. It's not like it was in there baking.

I'm actually relieved that the guy passed away like this and I think I'm at the age where deaths of people I know is starting to become more common, like how when you were in your late 20s to early 30s your calendar is filled with weddings. anyway, I also think I'm starting to accept that death is just part of the process, and not something to be totally distraught about. oh well, everyone goes, so enjoy whatever time we have, gents.
Good morning, mortality.
Don't forget the divorce phase that, at least for me, started in my early 30s, where a large proportion of the people who got married in the prior phase have decided they aren't happy.
Seriously, though, that whole situation sucks. I hope his family was set up financially for something like this.
