Day 148: Imagination

Imagine with me, if you will:

Imagine the excitement of a new job upon you. Imagine a delightful girls night the evening before your first day. Imagine freshly cut and painted toenails and fingernails. Imagine waking up in the morning in anticipation of making it to work on time; anticipation to dress nicely for an entire summer; anticipation to make sure your makeup looks good for your first day ever working "downtown" in a city. Imagine the most satisfying hot shower. Imagine the feeling of brand new waistband-free nylons on your freshly shaved and moisturized legs. Imagine the knowledge that lunch is on the company and not your responsibility. Imagine pulling on a skirt, after far too many cold winter months in pants. Imagine the intrigue of taking the train to work for the first time. Imagine the exhilaration of making it to work on time, after all the worry about it. Imagine getting your own office, with a view. Imagine a day of late running out-of-town meetings. Imagine coming home extremely late for a 4-year-old's birthday party. Imagine having to leave said birthday party to go and vote. Imagine coming home to make your meals for the next day. Imagine exhaustion setting in. Imagine going to bed to start again tomorrow.

Imagine forgetting to take a picture of your feet in nylons to document today.

I forgot.
