my life is a perfect storm of dominating sudoku and other petty things

Yesterday, I was in the bathroom dominating a difficult level sudoku. I over-heard this conversation between the New guy with a huge gut who leans forward and walks really fast and the veteran who waddles strangely and makes weird, weird faces: “Hi”
“Hey, how’s it goin?”
“Not bad, for a Monday.”
“Yeah, if you think about it, it’s technically a Wednesday.”
“Uh huh.” It’s Thanksgiving week.

Then at lunch I walked to this gas station and bought some cigarettes. I handed my Visa card to the guy.
“We check a photo ID with all card purchases,” the guy deadpanned.
“That is good for both of us,” I kind of said it in a robotic voice. “Hey, you got any matches?”
“Nope, something about flaming sulfur shooting through the air doesn’t mesh well with gas stations.” I thought he was just joking around. I mean, I knew he didn’t have matches, but I just thought he was joking about flaming debris flying through the air from striking a match.
“There are three components to a fire. Fuel. Oxygen. Spark."
"I would have no idea which of those three matches would be," I said, incredulously.
"You got flaming sulfuric bits flying through the air, it’s a perfect storm here.” He waved his arms at the gas pumps and the roof and all that. I walked back to work and got some matches at Joe's Cellar.

This morning I was taking a shower and thinking to myself, “hey, not bad, it’s kind of like a Thursday.” Then I was like, “fuuuuuuuuuck.”

do you need to seek counseling?

Don't even start thinking about when you didn't have class until ten, someone else cleaned the bathroom, and a multitude of meals were available 5-7.
That and the impending doom of winter photo above. . . eeeeee.
