I’ll read my books ….

I’ll read my books and I’ll drink coffee and I’ll listen to music, and I’ll bolt the door.                                                                                                                            ~ J. D. Salinger

In A Conumdrum

mug of coffee to my left

open laptop in front of me

a new book that was started this morning sits to the right of me

now what the hell shall I do

flip a coin

rock paper scissors

put a blindfold on and pick one

spin the bottle

good luck
