Caught in a storm


I moved through my day today with a Plan. I was going to take my research test, go to the grocery store and buy white vinegar, come home and wash the kitchen floor and make biscuits that would be so delicious that my roommates would be completely open to rent negotiations. Of course it didn’t go that way though. I’ve seriously baked for this conversation on three separate occasions only to not have it work out- the universe doesn’t want me to serve baked goods when we finally do talk things out.

I should’ve known things weren’t going to work out when I got out of school and saw the gathering storm clouds, but I fought my way through a torrential downpour to get to the store. I arrived soaked to the skin (seriously Baltimore, your gutters suck. I was wading through calf-deep water), and bought my vinegar, leaving a trail of water in my wake. Mopping the floor was a quick enough job, and the biscuits came out like little bready balls of goodness, but C.B. has class until 9:00 tonight, a fact that I knew, but temporarily forgot, and so it was for naught. Tonight wasn’t a good choice for the talk anyway- we all have tests tomorrow, so nerves are frayed, and no one wants to take a study break to argue about money. On the plus side…

Carb craving: satisfied.
