1. I complained incessantly about the cold, wet weather throughout the spring and summer, until my friends told me to shut up already. But I like the cold, wet weather of fall, even though it is objectively identical to the cold, wet weather of Seattle’s most recent spring and summer. In fact, fall is my favorite season.
2. I would like to learn to play the guitar, but I can’t sing. Is there any point in playing guitar if you’re not going to sing along?
3. All those foods that are supposed to be good for you that most people apparently don’t enjoy are my favorite foods. I feel lucky that way. I also love dark chocolate and red wine—also good for you. Truly, I am blessed.
4. I am not doing any damn dishes today. None.
4.6. I am 4.6 x 10 years old today. My ten-year-old insists that I am not old. “You’re not even halfway to 93!”
