After writing this post, I’m thinking it would be better as a diary entry. What the hell; I already wrote it and you’re already reading it. Want to hear what happened with my day today?
My day began with thinking I had slept through my yoga class — one of my greatest fears as an early-morning teacher! I had a super vivid dream that one of my regular students was trying to figure out how to teach everyone. Lily jumped into bed with me the last few minutes before my alarm went off to snuggle up to me and make me feel better.
I had a great moment in class, watching my students work hard and sweat it out, when my favorite song by “The Shins” started to play. It totally felt like a Wes Anderson movie, and solidified my love of teaching yoga that much more. (PS I’m all about playing good background music in yoga — it can make or break the energy of a class.)
Mid-morning I (only half-seriously) offered to give a coworker a tracheotomy with a pen and straw, when we thought she might be going into anaphylactic shock or have excess inflammation from Lyme disease. (We’re pretty sure it’s the early stages of Lyme disease — blood tests pending.) Thankfully, I didn’t have to take any drastic measures. It would have been a cool story, though, to save a life in my office.
Earlier I’d made plans that ended up being cancelled….. It was actually a nice treat to have a free night to chill out at home. I am only 2 episodes into Season 2 of “Orange is the New Black,” and it’s been calling my name all day. Netflix it is!
I hope you had some extra-ordinary moments today, among the normality of your Wednesday. Here’s to hump day, short weeks, extraordinary moments in the midst of the ordinary.
