I had to escape from myself today. So here's what I did.
I got up, made a split-second decision to head to work, showered, pulled on the only clothes in my wardrobe that did not require ironing, hopped on a bus, and headed to the office where I sat myself in a cubicle to eat a cheese sandwich with chilli with some of my friends.
I did not stay long in Port Louis.
By the time I got home, I was sufficiently wasted that sleep claimed me within minutes of me walking through the door.
By the time I woke up, the sun was gently setting. The day was over. Alhamdulillah.
Sometimes, there is no other way. Sometimes the only way is to run away from yourself.
