Days 52 through 56
52: It was bed-time and I still hadn't broken a routine, so I slept nekkid. (I don't usually.) I don't like it, and didn't sleep well. Every time I changed position, some part of my body hit a cold section of sheet or brought in a fresh, chilly gust of air.
53: I am not a singer. Pretty much the only time I feel compelled to sing is when a birthday cake is brought out or during the chorus of Bohemian Rhapsody. Today I sang in the shower. I got through all the lyrics of Cat Steven's "Moonshadow" twice.
54: I haven't used nail polish since I was about 12 years old. Today I painted my toe-nails:
55: On my walk to the thrift stores, I stopped at Starbucks and bought coffee. This probably wouldn't be a routine-breaker for most people, but I don't think I've been out for coffee for over a year. Got a tall soy latte, and it was yummy.
56: I went all OCD and avoided stepping on lines all day. Talk about a way to suck all the joy out of a walk. When you have to pay attention to the ground, you can't really notice anything else.
I'm finding it more difficult to come up with routine-breakers. I've already used up all the easy ones, like switching hands, sitting in a different spot, etc. Anybody have any great ideas?
