I spend a lot of time these days feeling slightly out-of-sync with the world. A surprisingly large amount of my day involves coping with chronic conditions. I have to take medications, and I can only eat certain foods, and then only slowly, and I get tired easily, etc., etc.
So it was very nice this rainy Saturday morning to be out doing conventional do-it-yourselfer man things, like talking with the guys at the tile place about sealants, and buying supplies at the Home Depot, so I can spend some time this afternoon working on our house. I was even wearing a plaid flannel shirt and blue jeans. It felt so, well, normal.
