The world is rubber, i am glue…

I never thought I would reach a point where Katamari Damacy was the ideal descriptor…and yet here I am.

For those out there who are not familiar with this particular gem of pop culture, it is a video game where you (yes, you friends!) are this tiny prince (and if you happen to be a male in your early 20s who dressed up like said prince for a Halloween party, you look like this you are probably very relieved that i'm not currently in a place where I have access to the photos of you). Your job is to take a sticky ball and roll it around various boards picking up everything and anything to form giant balls of junk that the King of All Cosmos will then make into stars.

Y’all still with me?

The point is that you can roll up anything. There is practically nothing that you come in contact with that doesn’t try to stick to you. And that’s what I feel like today.

It’s not really all that bad. Some things are pleasant enough and change the shape of my day for the better (such as the unexpected recitation of the Walrus and the Carpenter I was prompted to do this morning) and some are just awkward to incorporate (such as the barista at Starbucks this morning telling me that she was up most of the night because her goldfish is sick and she had to keep an eye on him).

I can’t say I’m not worried that I will encounter something rather poor before this condition passes, but hey, not much to be done. Just gotta take what comes in stride and make the best of the way it shapes my day and directs my motion.

…because the King of All Cosmos is counting on me.
