February 18th

cupMy horoscope today: “Saturn and Jupiter are aligning and you will have some great obstacle to overcome in order to achieve success.” Perhaps it is referring to my current shortage of fruit-cups.

There is a new door in the office. It’s behind the water cooler. It wasn’t there yesterday. Nobody has said anything. I was getting water and someone else was standing there as well. I kept trying to look at the door, to see if they would say anything, but they avoided eye contact and walked away. Perhaps it will come up in a meeting.

Jake wasn’t on the train this morning. I saw someone I recognized from work. They began to walk towards the empty seat that was next to me, saw me, and turn around to stand by the door. It was the only empty seat in the carriage.

I can see it from my office. The door I mean. It’s normal looking, and it has a lock built into the handle. The water cooler hasn’t moved as far as I can tell. The little sign that was behind the cooler has gone. It used to say “PLEASE TAKE ONE CUP AT A TIME OR DISPENSER WILL JAME”. Someone had spelt it ‘JAME’ but then crossed the ‘e’ out.
