I forgot to set my alarm last night so I woke up at five minutes past J.I'm supposed to be to work by I o'clock, so I was very late. On my way in, drivers were doing all kinds of strange things: a white Honda stopped at a green light, all four cars at the intersection of James Wood and Oxford pulled out at the same time, and, my favorite, a red Corolla stopped in the middle of the street with no light or stop sign around and just sat there, driver staring straight ahead. A police car sped up Wilcox, lights flashing, and then the very same car sped down Cahuenga just a minute later. It felt like the movie "The Happening" without all the suicide.
Perhaps the freakiest thing that happened today was that Terry, my co-worker who arrives between 10:30 and 11:00 every day, was at work BEFORE me. Hell, she'd been there since 9:00!! The day has just been topsy turvy and frankly, I'm not sure how safe it is for me to go out tonight. I may just go straight home and put a new battery in the alarm clock.
