I Missed My Play Time Today
“Play not only keeps us young but also maintains our perspective about the relative seriousness of things. Running is play, for even if we try hard to do well at it, it is a relief from everyday cares.” — Jim Fixx, author of the 1977 book The Complete Book of Running
I suppose I could’ve been all hardcore and gone running in the downpour this morning, but I’m not a full-fledged superhero yet. So instead, I did the The New York Times crossword puzzle and ate breakfast… which meant I could take the bus to work and arrive at the office on time for a change.
But then I was late for a 10:00 meeting anyway because I forgot about it and got caught up talking to a co-worker.
I guess it’s just going to be that kind of day.
