Monday night

The cheap, slightly sour smell of Chinese take-out from the "No. 1 Chinese Restaurant" around the corner, one of a dozen or two in the city with that name, no doubt, hangs in the air, silently accusing you, reminding you that you were too lazy to make your own dinner on one of the few weeknights, perhaps multiplying now with the nine-plus-hour days and new, especially taxing iteration of physical ailment, that you didn't eat out, until you can't take it any more and have to go and cinch the bag and take out the trash, flicking on the oscillating fan as you go. Hey, at least you're doing your own laundry.
