I had appointment after appointment today, so I was walking through the streets of Manhattan for hours….which meant I overheard a lot of chatter.
My favorites were between kids and their parents.
Child: Mom, can I get a smoothie?
Mom: I don’t have any money.
Child: Well, can’t we just buy some?
Child: …we saw Adrian afterwards.
Grandmother: It’s nice that he lives close by.
Child: Yes, right by the sewer.
Child in Stroller: Woo Woo Woo Woo Woo Woo…
Dad: Do you simply have to be heard all the time?
Child: (silence) Yes. Woo Woo Woo Woo

How was your day?
If you’ve had far better (like me), I have a two-word explanation:
It’s a full moon, but the Earth is at its farthest distance away, making tonight’s full moon appear its very smallest in the night sky. But that doesn’t lessen its impact…at least in my case.
I had a bad headache most of the day. My dog seemed to feel a bit punky, too. And I was running from appointment to appointment all day…so I am wiped.
Seems logical to blame the moon, right?
