Let it be known and recorded that on October 30th, 2004, I spent the entire day in a good mood.
Clinging to optimism may be difficult but it's pretty cool when it works.
This is a fairly small chance that the idea that popped into my head this morning is actually true. I don't think it's the least likely explanation, but it's certainly not the most likely.
What makes this possibility so intriguing to me is that, in this scenario, everything is not my fault. Some things certainly are, but not everything.
Of course I can't discuss this theory with anyone because they'd be sure to point out all kinds of blaring inconsistencies that I've managed to overlook in my sleep-deprived state.
