Some mornings you wake up wondering. Just wondering. You don’t know about what. But you are automatically wondering. You down a cup of coffee to wake up and hurry out into a sleepy world. That was me today. And, everything seemed topsy turvy.
I walked out of the house around 4:55am. While normally there are no cars out and about there were a few that I had to wait to pass. I then did my usual speed walk. Well, as speedy as I could be considering that my backpack weighed about 30 pounds. I stopped for a second to admire the moon. Then a female jogger ran past me. That was unusual. Then two separate women were walking their dogs. That was also unusual.
I got to the train station and the Starbucks was pitch dark. It was closed. That was way unusual. I tried the doors several times but they didn’t budge. I was sleepy and had a very long day ahead of. I shrugged and went onto the platform. There was no one there. No one. That was beyond unusual.
I looked around wondering why no one else wss here. It was just me and the bugs. And, they were on me like they were starving and had been invited to a feast.
That’s when I wondered whether I was in the Twilight zone. Everything had come full circle. I now knew what I was wondering about.
Twenty-eight minutes later the sky started to lighten up and there were other people around. But I still wondered.
