And a bunny made my day
I completely overslept today, like I really really badly overslept, I clumsily stumbled into a state of consciousness about an hour and a half after the alarm had started going off. At least I had a good night’s sleep, but I also remember why taking sleeping tablets on work days can be dangerous ;-)
I walked into the bathroom to find that I looked like Wednesday from the Addams Family, nice and pale, with big black bags under my eyes… Then I found that I couldn’t find my make-up, something I rarely use, but that can not be missed when you look this shitty. In the end I settled for glasses with a heavier rim and a determination to drink all the coffee I could cope with as soon as I got in the office.
As I was cycling to the office, I noticed a wild rabbit sitting in the grass as I rode under a viaduct, and as I came closer, it hopped away, and it jumped up a stair case leading up to the train tracks. It seriously hopped up the stairs, calmly and controlled, while bouncing in a way that made it look effortless, every jump measured to land on the next step in the exact same spot as on the one it had just hopped off of.
All of this while I was listening to “Nothin’ But A Good Time” sung by (in this case) Poison, in the chorus…
Don’t need Nothin’ But A Good Time
How can I resist
Ain’t looking for Nothin’ But A Good Time
And it don’t get better than this
The hopping bunny in combination with that music just made me realize how much beauty there is in life, and it truly made my day :-)
I feel motivated and creative, as opposed to the lethargic feeling I had this morning when I got up.
