I find it that the most important person in a restaurant is the person doing the dishes. No one will fire a dishwasher because they do not want to have to do his job. The dishwasher stands in one spot for 5-8 hours and does nothing but scrub remnants from the patron’s plate. He thinks when will I be able to afford a meal at the place I work, when will I get a weekend off, when will people respect me? He ponders, he is irreplaceable he is the unwanted need.
I must have thought something was going to happen. I woke up in a stupor. A zombie sitting on your bed as you harass me to consciousness. I was not depressed yet, as I drove, I thought about how I would drop Bambi off and I would go on with my day of doing nothing. I realized that I was depressed and needed something to do after about an hour. I read, I did stuff online, and I met with a friend from class for coffee. The clouds were blocking the sun at first, and when I was reading in the park earlier I started shivering because of the cool breeze, but the sun was out and hot now. I took refuge under a sign that was strategically placed above my head at the coffee shop where I sat. The book, from the park earlier, made me laugh and as children left the playground I marked my spot and took off towards my apartment.
I got home and put on a hat. I grabbed my bike, although my tires were a bit flat, and I took to the road. The clouds had parted and the wind was blowing against me as I rode. I got up onto Hennepin and biked on the busy streets southbound. I saw her from a distance and rolled up on her with my bike. She said it was awkward how a guy in a BMW stopped to ask her if she wanted to have a good time. She said no to him and he persisted, she walked away. I ran into her just after that. It must have spooked her a bit, but it got better. We talked business, consulting, and self-promotion. Right then I realized I should be a consultant. Right then I left and rode home to watch Casino and become friends with everyone on Twitter and Facebook. I want to reach self-actualization before the end of the day. I need excitement, and I think I got it.
