Today I had a shower, then wandered into the bedroom to find some clothes. I had to put on my evening gown, since I haven’t tried it on in over a year now. I’ve never worn it anywhere, I still have no idea why I bought it, but I just had to put it on and walk around in it for a while. I still love that dress. I still look good in that dress. I own two evening gowns, I’ve worn the wine-coloured velvet and satin gown for an awards banquet back when I was in school, and I’ve never worn the black one for anything. I don’t live a life that requires evening gowns, but I love them both and will not part with them.
So I wandered around in my evening gown for a while, and I looked at myself in the mirror and felt beautiful. It was good. Now I’m back in normal person clothes.
It’s time for some Blue Rodeo. I hope the groceries arrive soon. I hope the advil I keep taking kicks in soon. I hope I get off my ass and do something about my life soon. Right now, I’m too tired, my head hurts, and I’m sick of thinking.
I should read my cards, but I already know what they’ll say.
