train of thought

i’ve been up since 05:45 today (after a somewhat short shut-eye), and this was my first (and extremely slow) train of thought:

    car reverses in our (very secluded) driveway. i look out the window

    “why is there a car backing up here at 05:45 in the morning?”

    “it could be peter picking me up for work, but he said he’d be here by quarter to six. don’t think he would be AN HOUR EARLY.”

    i look at the alarm clock: 05:45


    pause. looking out the window again.


    i actually go look at a memo i wrote to myself, which says “pickup: 05:45”.

    “05:45 IS quarter to six!”
