little me

the sunshine releases the extra deliciousness in the sandwich

Two days in a row now, I've been able to sit outside on my lunchbreak, eating a sandwich while I can feel the sunshine on my arms. I enthusiastically welcome short sleeves and al fresco dining back into my life. My world is sadder when they are unavailable to me.

I didn't want to use the word "literally" in that last sentence, but it would have been appropriate. I am honestly and almost quantitatively happier in the office in the afternoon if I've been able to spend an hour on a bench with a book in the sunshine. It's, like, plus ten happy points. It's an improvement of a whole letter grade.

It's Friday, three hours until the weekend begins. That helps, too.
