Dutch Lock Down Day Ninety Nine

[Today Was Not a Good Day]

Today’s official title makes that song start in my head like an earworm that won’t die and that sucks because today was NOT a good day. Starting from the moment I woke up.

No, actually, starting from last Thursday.

Not that those songs aren’t totally still my jam.

But they’re not Who I Am Right Now if that makes sense.
