Imperfect, But Still Good

So, I was alone in the men's room at Coco's restaurant, standing at a urinal and thinking about how good life is.

It was a Saturday morning and Domestic Partner and I had decided to go out for a leisurely breakfast. We had just ordered and I needed to wash my hands. I was physically exhausted but still on an emotional endorphin high from the night before, having re-opened the second extension of the 99 Cents Only Calendar Girl Competition. I had a blast doing my first performance.

All of the work of rehearsal is over. It was time to relax and savor the sheer joy of performing live again. And I had the whole Saturday stretched out before me, before the evening's performance, a whole day to attend to what had been neglected. I actually looked forward to buying groceries, doing laundry and vacuuming.

I felt content and peaceful, savoring also the anticipation of seeing close friends in England next month, shortly after the show closes.

It was then that I finally noticed that my aim was off. I was missing the urinal and wetting the tiled floor of Coco's men's room.

Life is good. It sure ain't perfect, but it's good.

I have figured out from years of marriage and also raising two sons, the aim situation is random and dicey at any age.

You are giving the Japanese a bad name.

Hey, it's hard to get back into a routine after having been away a while. Even a really routine routine.

I was worried about a post that began in a bathroom. Sigh. Congrats on the performance.
