Today, I pulled up to a red light at an empty intersection around 6AM with my windows down. I didn’t have the radio on, but I was singing ‘I Would Do Anything For Love’ by Meat Loaf, almost at the top of my lungs. I thought I was all alone until a lady I didn’t see sitting at the bus stop started singing along with me at the top of her lungs. I paused for a second, but she kept singing, so then I joined her for a few lines before the light turned green. MMT

Today, I have been teaching a hard-of-hearing child swim lessons for 3 weeks. I found different strategies to accommodate his disability, and he and I understand each other.

In reality he was looking at her to make sure she was watching what he had learned. The extent of her unawareness with her own child MMT.

Today, I was expecting an important USPS package. I usually never get home from work in time to sign for my packages, so I always get the standard “pick up your package” slip. So today, to avoid this, I left work early and rushed home, only to find the slip in my mailbox. Bummed, I went into my room to relax for a few minutes and the doorbell rang. It was the mailman, who said, “I saw you drive into the neighborhood, so I came back to give you your package.” MMT
