“Hey there!”“Hi, Emmy, how are you?”“I’m good. How are you doing?”“I’m doing good.”“Liar!”He laughs. “I’m having a rough day.”“I know.

Restarting the Week

Monday I woke up with what I thought was a simple headache. As I would learn later, it was definitely a migraine. I got on the train and made it to work. I really don’t recall much of the trip given the fact I was pretty out of it. My objective for going to work…
