a day to forget

A day to forget It was a rotten day from the start, got up late feeling as if he had not slept at all and the night had been dreamless all his phobias leak into his dream, making the day easier to point turning on the TV, same old stuff wars It is easy to stop a war but near impossible to stop and this war is a conflict about values. He made a coffee but had no milk, and the toaster didn’t function ate a banana instead; versatile fruit easy to eat and not as fattening as slimming prophets say. They were having lunch at a Scandinavian club it was dark looked like a den for unhappy escapists, angry people talking critically about the country they had chosen to live in. They ate stew at a local café, and a fly landed on his wife’s food she is a hypochondriac who claimed she had been poisoned hauled her into the car, which had a parking sticker. When she felt better after her brush with calamity, he drove her to a nail bar, while waiting he played the radio When he started the car, the battery was flat.
