You trap your own arm in the electric window of your car when reaching for a parking ticket (Just one step ahead of yourself)
No matter how hard you try to be in the present moment you keep popping out of your body and floating over an imaginary table arrangement sometime in the not too distant future
Your bed time reading is Rumi
You keep filling up with tears for inexplicable reasons like how beautiful the peaches are that the street fruit seller offers you
Your boyfriend and you have never ever had such quick turnarounds between disagreement and make-up
You wake up in the night sweating about all the people you wish you could have invited but didn't coz you had to draw the line somewhere.
Your handbag is a clutch of receipts.
Your bank account is gasping
You stop at green traffic lights and don't realise it til people behind you hoot
You walk past florist shops and give them the same eye that hawks give when they spy mice in the grass
Your family members suddenly think you're a travel agent
You are immersed in 'life admin' documents but don't know what to sign your name as
You don't know if its too late to invite the people you wanted to invite now that two people have cancelled and you could theoretically make up the numbers but isnt that kind of rude.
You cannot, simply cannot think about anything else
You are trying not to behave like a diva, but....
You have any to add, those of you that have been through this particular little rite of passage?
