You go along not catching many breaks. AT ALL. But then suddenly something happens and you get a tiny bit of breathing space:
A black cab in the rain
Yes, you all take Ubers now. Yes, this is old school. But do you remember when the rain was pouring and you had had a cocktail or two and had maybe broken up with your boyfriend? You were a soaking soak and then you saw the light? Exactly.
Something that comes back from the menders properly mended. Or you get something altered (dress into top, let’s say) or re-upholstered. And it’s like you have a new thing. A new old thing. Hello old thing.
8 hours sleep
The no bra
You get home and take leave of your bra and whoosh there is a tiny bit more space in your atmosphere.
Surprise exercise (surprisercise?)
Bear with us here. A little window in the space time continuum opens and you suddenly think, ‘I will go for a run/do a yoga class’ and all the stars align and you do it and it feels AMAZING. That’s you done for a while. Tick tick tick.
