Strange Day

Strange day today... all around.

A friend who is always loud and exuberant was quiet and reserved on a phone call. Hmmm.

I read a financial update that looked very good, in light of the economy. Hmmmm.

I had to instruct my middle son to NOT leave his "cup" on the table. Or the kitchen counter. Or anywhere, except his room. Yikes.

And earlier, I was sitting in my office. It was about 4pm. Suddenly, I heard a man's voice in my living room. At first, I assume it's Walter. The front door was open, as it always is... I stand up. There is a man I don't know standing in my living room.

Yes?

Is this the open house?

My first thought is, can you see what a mess it is?

No, it's not.

My favorite, privileged white male response- Are you sure?

I LIVE HERE, YES I AM SURE.

Yes.

He turns and leaves and I have to say, in my almost 25 years here, I have never, ever had anyone just walk in the door.

Very strange.
