I always have several books started. I read several for variety of reasons and genres. One reason is so I can put one down when it gets stressful and pick up another one. Today, every book I’ve picked up has had death in it. One book, about a third of the way in, the main character’s father dies. Another, the first sentence of the book, a random pedestrian gets hit by a car and dies.
I decided this was a sign to get up and get moving toward work. So I got in the car and started to listen to an audiobook by a comedian. I was listening to him talk about a soap opera. As I was about to get out of the car at work, the main character in the soap opera died.
I think I was not meant to read this morning. I should probably get some work done.
