Not going to work today means not being paid today...let me guess your boss isn't aware of ATS...right?
Good luck and try to grow a pair.

I'm not going to work today, and it's for no better reason than because I...
I can't really explain why!
For the past few days (since last Thursday or Friday) I've had this feeling that "danger is lurking" nearby.
Although, "nearby" translates more like "monumental".
I keep having flashbacks to the summer of 1968 and the national (US) turmoil experienced then.
And to tell the truth, recent events these past few months, and especially these past few days, have done nothing to calm my fears.
I could not sleep at all last night.
I've had no caffeine of any kind since Saturday.
And just typing this post is giving me butterflies in my belly and chills up my spine.
I really hope it's just a summer "bug" of some kind.
I'm not usually this sort of "nervous Nelly", but something has got me on a razor's edge, and I don't like it.
The last time I felt this anxious was the night before the Northridge, CA earthquake years ago.
But this feels less "defined"; like maybe the threat is farther out from me geographically and/or temporally?
I have to admit that the GOP convention opening today really ramps up the Heebie Jeebies whenever I think about it.
Be safe, all.
