Back to school, Monday evening, 6:22 p.m.

Diet coke.
Choco Thin Thin cookies despite the fact I’m eating dinner in 30 minutes.
One eye half-closed.
The other looking at the bed.
Heavy sigh.
More diet coke.
A glance to the bottle of wine.
Is it strong enough?
Another sip of coke.
Another glance at the cookies.
Cookies are gone.
Another heavy sigh.
Only four days left to the weekend.
A glass of red wine.
