sixty degrees and sunny

Today is sixty degrees and sunny. Sixty degrees. Sunny. I was beginning to think I would never see days like this again. Everyone I interviewed today was fantastic. Not a one of them made me grit my teeth or yawn with my mouth closed whilst they spoke. They provided lunch for us at our meeting. Two people gave me their giant chocolate chip cookies afterward. They talked about possibly sending me on a work trip. I've never been on a work trip before.

Today was fantastic. And it came just at the right time. My morale has been sinking lately at work. Both money and my pants are tight. I've seen nothing but gray skies for two weeks. I was allowing myself to sink into a funk. A non-clinical depression. Today was exactly what I needed. Sunny all around. Today, problems weren't my focus, but instead, perks were. It feels good.

I'm not sure that optimism suits my personality, but it sure feels good to try it on. Sure there is snow in the forecast and things will return to normal and I will soon be all too aware of what could be better. But today, I wouldn't change a thing.

P.S. Still no comments from Aziz, but I'm being patient.
