When I woke up this morning, my feet and hands had switched spots. I stared in horror. Ok I thought, I’m going to have to go down head first. I hung over the side of the bed and tried to balance, but fell. On the floor, I drug myself to the bathroom. I managed to get on the edge of the tub and cartwheel myself onto the toilet to finally relieve myself. I washed both my hands and feet because I was very confused. I grabbed my toothbrush with my feet and the green toothpaste crammed underneath my toenails.
When I woke up this morning, my feet and hands had switched spots. I tried to grab my phone, but my toes kept twitching and I dropped it. Wait—were my toes my fingers now? Or where they still toes because they were on a foot?
My hand-feet faired a little better. I was able to get out of bed, but my cat tripped me. I now sat sprawled on the floor.
I give up. This is going to be the longest Monday ever.
