Learning and Growing
Not a whole helluva lot to say today other than I am learning and growing. We ended up getting a flu vaccine yesterday, which was a good idea... we had just forgotten about it when we SHOULD have done it around Thanksgiving. It would have been easier and quicker. At this time of the year, in our region, the only place that still has it is the Public Health Department. Because of this, instead of a five minute adventure like it would have been in November, became a 2.5 hour wait. But, even though it was hot in the PHD, and more crowded than the scenes in Soylent Green, it was worth it to get the vaccine. Although I must admit I felt rather like Edward G. Robinson's character, Sol Roth in that very noteworthy science fiction film.
I admit to being a bit aggravated and frustrated after the long wait, and so I smoked my pipe, and again decided to put it away after less than a minute of smoking. It was just not the stress relief or aggravation relief I had wanted it to be. I still think, although I smoked briefly, that I did well yesterday, and I again think I learned a great deal. Again, keep in mind that a normal pipe for me extends well into the 20+ minute range, so this was quite minor. But it counts as 1 bowl.
Today's (Tuesday's) Goal = 0
Yesterday's [1/7] (Monday's) Goal = 0 bowls
Actual consumption (Monday) = 1 bowl
