Oh sweet god I feel terrible today! Woke up but did I really sleep? I may have, but I'm not sure. Either way, I don't feel like I slept. My eyes feel heavy and I have a dull headache. The shower doesn't help, nor does the coffee. I feel like a piece of crap!
I go to work, and I think people are looking at me. "Hi, John!" I say to John, but he walks away. What have I done? Why don't people like me?
For lunch I decide I need to leave the office. I cross the street and I see little children pointing at me. What is going on? I look at my reflection in a car window, and I think I look "normal." Just then a car drives by and water from a paddle is splashed all over my pants! Did I mention my pants don't fit well? The waist is too tight, but the leg is too baggy and the break...well, I won't even go there.
I need help. I can't keep going like this. What is the point of all this?
Just then I look up and see one who is at peace, who is content. "Who are you?" I ask.
"I'm your special bodhisattva!"
"Oh thank you!"
