Day 301 – October 28, 2018
Is it just me or is there a common theme in the prompts and challenges recently? I don’t me to come off angsty, but nothing goes together better than pumpkin spice and fall colors (please don’t take that seriously, I rather have a deep fondness for those exact same things). This morning, as I was enjoying a cup of coffee I happened to notice a bit of a chill isolated on an area just below the zipper of my jeans. Upon inspection, it seems that, well the seam, was worn down, started to fray, and a sizable hole was in the mid stages of development. Two thoughts immediately came to mind. One, how long had said hole been there, because based on the size, it wasn’t just today. And two, how many noticed and didn’t say anything? My students definitely didn’t and, having been a student myself, I wouldn’t say anything either. Kind of creepy when you think that by telling someone something like that, you are admitting you were looking in that general area, so it is probably best to let it go. Much like noticing a fly being down. I just got off track, sorry. So I figured I probably should go pick up a couple of new pairs of jeans, which leads me to the photo. I hadn’t been to this part of Gettysburg in a while, but this area happened to be a patch where the gorgeous colors of fall stood out. This is what I am waiting for. This is home in the fall. I would have preferred to hike the wooded trails rather than shop for jeans. But the situation being what it was, and where it was, I thought that I should probably prioritize and take care of the immediate concern. Mission accomplished! You have one chance at this Monday, make it the best you can!
