My morning didn’t start out the way I expected. Normally, I talk to my dad at some point. This morning, I couldn’t reach him. I knew he had an appointment, I knew he’d be getting ready to leave, so he should have answered.
Usually he’ll call or text within a few minutes, but nothing. The panic, a whisp in my stomach grew and spread as the worry became a beast all its own.
I headed over.
Still on the way he didn’t answer. Finally I knocked at his door.
And he opened it, bewildered.
We discovered that somehow he’d managed to turn his phone on to Do Not Disturb. It was effective.
Even though he is tech savvy. Even though he knows how his phone works. He just didn’t notice.
But once I was there, I figured…why not go with the flow? I offered him a ride to his appointment, and I grabbed a coffee while I waited for him. I started this post but he was faster than I was.
We went to the grocery store, both picking up odds and ends. In what felt like a reward from the universe, they had fresh figs.
Fresh figs! One of my favorites.
This isn’t how I thought my day would look. My blog is late, everything is all turned around. But I went with it.
And it was good.
Anyway, that’s it for me for what’s left of this Wednesday. Have a great day.
