Well, it's Halloween and the costume that I had planned fell through. Normally, in situations like this, I'd go to the dress up bin and pull out some stuff and throw a costume together, but I don't have a dress up bin here in the college dorms. So I'm spending the day dressed as me while wearing massive latex Elf ears. With such a simple costume, I'm the only one dressed up right now, but I don't mind.
Because of the AWOL costume, I was expecting today to be a bit of a downer. I imagined that I would eat breakfast, check my mail box one last time only to find it perpetually empty and walk back to the dorms without having to say a word beyond 'hi'. But I'm glad none of that happened.
A girl I only know in passing from my church service every sunday came to eat with me during breakfast. We talked about nothing in particular, classes, family, and my ridiculously large extended family, but it felt nice to have someone to talk with this morning. Then I went to check my box, again expecting the worst.
But there was a letter inside. It was one of my mom's handwritten letters where she uses a fountain pen and two sheets of paper, covering both sides, and sends it in a cute envelope. In it she, again, talks about nothing in particular. Work, Halloween, Siblings and even the yard. But it was nice to find a letter instead of nothing in the box. Then I began to walk back home.
All bundled up and with my head down, I didn't expect a friend to be out on the street just having finished breakfast, but she was there and she said more than just 'hi'. The conversation didn't really deserve to be call a conversation since we exchanged no more than three sentences each, but it was a lot more talking than I expected to do this morning.
So, the three expectations I had were, one after the other, turned on their heads.
Maybe today won't be that bad after all.
