I have good days now, and am starting to be productive again, but I'm still sad. I'm sad because of my dad and I'm sad because of my mom (the anniversary of her passing is almost here) and I'm sad because of Ish and how sometimes it just feels like everything is hard right now.
And the big problem with being sad is that it takes a lot of my time and energy. I want to have the energy to write. To create. To get back into stand-up. To jump back into the healthy routine of diet and exercise I started. Instead, I just feel like I'm in lock-down mode. Auto pilot. Energy-saver.
I know it'll get better. I'm just waiting for a second (or what is it now? fifth? sixth?) wind.
IN THE MEANTIME, I was wondering yesterday, as I was eating half a burrito for lunch, just what kind of aluminum foil the Mexican restaurants use to wrap burritos in. It's clearly not heavy-duty Reynold's wrap. It's like, thinner and more maleable (and also impossible to pull off a burrito in any sort of easy way).
And after a few seconds of dwelling on the physical characteristics of my burrito foil, I started to wonder if burrito foil is the same kind that hair salons use for highlights.
Which then made me wonder if there's maybe some sort of store that exists specifically for that cross-over demographic. You know, like Rick's Burrito and Beauty Supply Store or something.
I would totally shop there.
