In the morning, there was a naked man doing yoga in the park.
Then a stranger offered me cold chicken McNuggets on my walk to work.
En route to the grocery store, I saw a police officer tackle a man to the sidewalk. The man said “Aw, what’d I do now?!” as he fell to the ground.
When I was walking home, I walked by the scene to see if my recollection of the officer wearing a helmet was correct. Yep, a bike cop had tackled the dude. The dude left the scene on a stretcher.
Next, I read 52 essays about the KKK, wondered when we would get to go back to the Library of Congress, had a champagne toast to lament the fiscal new year, and hoped my essential roommate would get to go back to work soon (the non-essential one is still gainfully employed).
“Is the government open?” (Nope.)
