Pita’s, Writing, and Tea (Day 95)

I have an abnormal love for Pita’s. One of my part-time jobs is in a Pita shop and so when I work there, I always buy a Pita at some point during my shift. When I don’t work I constantly crave them, so it’s a bit of a problem. A delicious problem. When you stuff them with fresh veggies they are super healthy too. Today, other than working and eating my usual Sunday-after-work Pita, I mostly just chilled out, as I had to recover from last night. Last night involved a lot of gin. Tonight, I may be pulling another all-nighter in order to finish a creative writing assignment (due tomorrow!). What is it with me and all nighters?? I’m excited to drink multiple cups of tea whilst listening to playlists on Songza. Is it weird that I enjoy that?

Hypochondria thoughts: mild.

I had some anxiety while opening a can of olives at work (cue laugh-track). This is going to sound extremely weird but sometimes I become paranoid when I open cans of food because I think the can opener might scratch pieces of the tin can into the food and then I will eat them and get sick. You’re probably thinking wtf. Anyway, the cans of olives at my work are so big that I always have a hard time opening them. I had to go around the can with the can opener about fifty thousand times and then it still didn’t open (I had to shake the olives out of a tiny crack that I pried open). When I was done, the table was covered in pieces of the label that was stuck on the can and little metal bits. Because of my health anxiety, it freaked me out (I have no other explanation).

P.S- Song of the day is World Spins Madly On by The Weepies. You know when you hear a song at a particular moment and you think, this song fits perfectly with this moment, well this song did that for me today.
