I thought I would have an overwhelming sense of guilt about my day yesterday. But the truth is, I do not. I hadn’t deviated from any plan of what I should have been doing but, instead, forged ahead with my original intention and spent the majority of the day on my couch binge-watching the remaining episodes of Breaking Bad on Netflix. There, I said it….I’m out.
I did manage to feed myself the required meals to sustain my ability to swear at the screen and I did tend to my puppy dog, as the job did seem obligatory. But any task outside of those parameters took a back seat and I was glued to the screen.
As the credits rolled and I waited for the next episode to begin, I had to face the harsh reality as the screen changed to the standard Netflix screen and not the profile of the characters I have come to know so well. No longer would I be captivated by Walter White and his transformation from meek Chemistry teacher to the tower of greed and felonious intentions that he slowly became. I had to call it – time of death, 10:39 pm.
I will slowly acclimate to the reality I once knew. My blog will learn to recognize me once again. My Kindle will be dusted off and my vacuum will feel the familiar touch of my hands as I learn to live my old life. I’m sure my friends will vaguely recall what my voice sounds like once I pick up the phone to re-establish contact. I just hope I can remember not to call them all “bitch”.
