Autumnal Equinox

It's the Autumnal Equinox...but no true signs of Fall just yet here on the North Shore.

Recently heard as a Mitsubishi Endeavor barrelled down Storrow Drive in Boston...

J: "OK, so I've put you on my calendar for --"
M: "Tunnel."
J: "--that Saturday. Probably lunch. What?!"
M: "I said, 'tunnel.' "

[two minutes later]

"And she went to Utah, and really--"
"--loves it there."

[a few minutes later]

" 'nother tunnel."

Late for Work

I spent a typical weekend -- shopping, doing stuff around the house, talking to friends and family. Yesterday I played softball for the first time in three years. Was thoroughly exhausted by the time I went to bed. So, of course, I overslept.

This morning, I was late to work.

And as I rushed through my morning routine, trying to get my act together and my hair under control, I realized something.

Five years ago today, I was late to work.
