Not Even A Monday


Sometimes things get so dark and for stupid, completely avoidable, reasons.


I believe this illustration is by an illustrator named, Laura Barrett

Too late; you’ve fallen down the rabbit hole. Even worse, you followed someone else down the rabbit hole!

Ironically, it makes sense to you now. You know what all the fuss was about and it was ultimately kind of insignificant, but you went there anyway! You dived in headlong, stupid girl! Now, it’s dark, slippery and you’ve got a root wrapped so tight around your ankle that it’s not going to be easy, in fact, it just might be impossible to climb your way out.

Damn! That hurts! Oh, Damn! That was humiliating too.

As you are stuck down there you can’t help but think about how you got yourself into this pickle. You know it’s going to be a good while before you can extricate yourself and scrabble your way up out of the gloom. After a while you start to wonder if you even want to bother attempting to extract yourself. You’re bleeding pretty badly and it just doesn’t seem worth the effort.

This didn’t have to happen. It was a perfectly good day. It’s not even a Monday.
