i'm laying in bed with the windows open listening to the drizzle of a much anticipated bout of rain. the air coming in through the window screen is cool, crisp, and smells like leaves and autumn. there is a tiny gnat crawling on my computer screen, but not surprisingly, i can't get myself to swat it away because i imagine that it has goosebumps over it's tiny fly body and is using the heat that my computer puts out in order to stay warm in this suddenly cool city. after all, a flies life is only like 3 days, right? i want him to have a good time about it.
perhaps i'll consider it my good deed for the day. i realize that seems like a rather lame 'good deed' but i'm just going to go from the gnats perspective on this one...it'll make me feel better about myself.
tomorrow i will aim higher, maybe shoot for a homo sapien, or at the very least, a mammal.
