I decided to list out a few pros and cons from this Monday, May 10 in the year of our Lord 2021:
Pro: I woke up.
Con: It was Monday.
Pro: At least it wasn’t raining today.
Con: It felt colder and windier than a mid-May day is supposed to feel.
Pro: It felt like a sneak preview of October — almost like a Maytober kind of day.
Con: I never felt like I was able to fully wake up all day.
Pro: There was coffee, so at least I could keep my eyes open and do adulty stuff (or at least fake doing adulty stuff really well).
Con: There are four more days until the next weekend.
Pro: Tomorrow is looking like a good day, and the rest might just surprise me with some unexpected goodness. And there’s more coffee.
Con: Potentially there’s a con to everything, depending on how you look at it, whether from a human-sized perspective or from a God-sized one.
Pro: God is bigger than anything I will face for the rest of the week . . . and beyond.
