There I Lay…

~~~

A day like any other, a Monday like all others.

Meetings, Admin, phonecalls. Much of the same, much of the mundane.

Why is this one different? Perhaps it has got to do with my heart beating like a wild buffalo in my chest.. perhaps it has to do with me sitting on the bathroom floor.

…. yes.

*Sets the scene*

Coffee Shop bathroom, the lighting is not so good – but who wants to see anything in a public bathroom too closely anyway.

I manage to leave the bathroom stall intact, albeit it disheveled from the balancing act of bag, phone and the acrobatics required in a room the size of a cereal box.

It is quiet, only the hum from the overhead light to be heard. I make my way to the basin, wash my hands whilst looking around for some hand towels, none to be seen. So I shake my hands, turn around and walk towards the door…

VRRRROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMM!!!!

Photo taken straight after the attack.. Blurry due to shaky hands.

The hand dryer snuck up on me and belted its existence in a decibel reserved for stampeding buffalo!!

I scream, jump back and somehow land on my ass..

Classy as fuck.

So there I sat/lay/cowered.. staring at the noisy asshole whilst attempting to foist my heart from the middle of throat back in position.

Ja, Monday’s. So how was yours?
