a new metric

I've had better days, but it was nothing too awful. Then I checked my email and found this:
Hey,

Lisa and I are going to take your car tomorrow ... so if you can be here around 7:30 I'd appreciate it a lot.

Thanks a million
Jen

This is no treat, as it is hard enough getting to work on time, an hour early is a big deal. Called the babysitter, she said fine. Told myself what a pain in the ass this was.

Then I counted all the snakes in the house. Counted again just to be sure: zip. Zero snakes. My evaluation of the day drifted back into the nothing-too-awful column. Thanks, slightlymadmom!
