There are days when everything goes well. You get out of the house on time, the barista accidentally makes too much coffee and gives you a bigger cup, work goes smoothly, kid is happy, and you get to bed at a reasonable hour. Those are the days that you always hope for, the ones manage to be simultaneously mundane and euphoric, that make your life feel like an everlasting golden hour.
… and then there are the ones where the only thing that will get you through the day is a strange combination of pastries, pop music, and the point-and-click comfort of virtual cookie-crafting.
Today is the latter.
