I'd just finished shaving, combing my hair, brushing my teeth, I'd gotten my clothes on and me all neat, I was looking into the mirror, giving myself that intense, psyched-up-for-the-day glare of approval, as usual, but then walking out of the frame - looking myself right in the eyes - I suddenly gave myself the finger!
I don't know how to interpret it!
On one level, I did it with a kind of a surge of badass bravado and defiance welling up in one impulsive act, but on the other hand, I was looking right into my own eyes as I did so, and I have to say, what I read there seemed...hostile.
Dog gone it. Like I needed this today! I have a huge day today - some major negotiations to close, I need to be on board and at one with me of all people! And to start off like this, on the wrong foot with myself - this is about the last thing I need.
Have to leave all that to sort out later I guess. Nothing for it. Nothing to do now but deep breath and plunge.
