Pink Floyd said it all with the title of their song "Comfortably Numb."
Routines are easy.
It's easy to watch television in baggy clothes and snuggle up to your puppy.
It's not so easy to shower (again) do your hair (again) shave (for once) and put on those heels that make you 3 inches taller.
But sometimes, the 4 hour dinner conversation that may stem from it on a Tuesday night is worth it.
The 9-5 mundane routine, followed by television, and early bedtimes always causes me to feel like I'm standing just on the edge of something...
whether it's something awful or something great... it's just out of my reach.
At the end of the day, say around 5:15... it boils down to whether or not I'll jump or be pushed,
but either way it will lead to something new.
