(No) Cup of Tea

What a strange and trying week it’s been.

Monday: Nine people died and more than 70 people were injured in the worst DC Metro accident in its history on the line I take to and from work.

Tuesday: Tornadoes in Iowa. While my friends and family are safe, my mother spent 40 minutes in the meat cooler of our local grocery store until storms had passed.

Wednesday: A high school football coach outside of my hometown was gunned down in the school’s weight room by a former player.

Thursday: Farrah Fawcett dies and Michael Jackson goes into cardiac arrest died. (Damn. Plus Ed McMahon? I guess things do happen in threes.)

Life can be full of weird and horrific things, can’t it?

Belle and Sebastian’s song, “For the Price of a Cup of Tea” helps inspire joy to counteract the feeling of fffff*ck.
