I have a cold, and am on my second day home sick from work. I feel a bit better today, and went for a walk to the Coles. It is cool and sunshiny, and I am really out of it. It must be the medication. I walked without feeling it, protected from the world by hoodie and sunglasses. A girl, a woman, came hurtling ’round the corner right into me, rebounded apologising profusely… I didn’t even look at her, feel I didn’t notice it had even happened until a few seconds later. I am blunted, vague and empty.

I bought some white bread because it will comfort me when I eat it with cheese. I’ll do that now.

It’s my birthday tomorrow.
