Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Monday, August 20, 2021

Apparently, the hip thing to do in Britain is attending a house party dressed up in a homemade Optimus Prime costume. Naturally, a costume that “transforms” into a cardboard truck and back.

How the hell are you supposed to maneuver around a crowded party in such a boxy get-up? At least his friend’s Tetris suit had a slightly practical aspect to it, doubling as a portable drink holder…

Of course, if you really want to go all-out with an 80s toy-tribute design, look no further than the giant rotating Rubik’s Cube costume.

As I woke up and went through my usual morning ritual today, I couldn’t shake the nagging urge to crawl back into bed and avoid this whole Monday.

Obviously, my subconscious was speaking to me. And it turns out it doesn’t like taking “no” for an answer. To wit:

This afternoon, while pouring myself a cup of hot tea, I managed to douse my fingers with the boiling water. Worse, I kept doing it for a couple of seconds before snapping back to reality.

That, on top of the various other self-destructions I’ve self-inflicted today, pretty much did the job. I’m waving the white flag and regrouping for tomorrow. After I stop by the drugstore for some burn ointment.
