"I haven't slept all night.
It is 4 AM. I am making myself a golden dead nettle herbal tea because I am dying of thirst and there is no drinking water in the house. While it brews, I lose my patience and fill a glass of tap water over a slice of lemon. The tap water here, in the town where I have been working as a governmental consultant, is way too calcareous for my taste. The best drinking water I ever had can be found in my grandparents´ backyard fountain, by the Meridional Carpathians.
It´s 5. I am configuring Outlook Express for my Gmail account.
6.30. Taking a shower, putting on a hydrating face mask, then make-up, then getting dressed to run out at the corner shop to buy me some breakfast: a large can of yogurt with apricots and granola, a rye bread and (yes!) - a chocolate bar. I poured some wheat germs on the yogurt and ate about a quarter of it, then the whole chocolate bar. I prepared myself a crunchy peanut butter and jelly sandwich to have at the office. What a hell, I haven't eaten almost anything in more than 36 hours. Just drank water. Apparently, not enough of it either.
Then I remembered I forgot to buy drinking water and ran again to the corner shop. I was so damn' sunk in my thoughts that a car almost hit me. The truth is the bastard didn't even lower his speed.
I bought a barrel of 5 liters of natural mineral water and brought it home. This time I watched the traffic carefully.
Inside, I finished my make-up, changed three tops until I found an appropriate one and off I went. At 7.35. It was way too early anyway, the hypermarket wasn´t even open by the time I arrived. So I headed for the office. A couple of my environmental guardian coworkers were waiting by the door. No one had the key. So I went to the coffee shop nearby and bought a bottle of drinking water. Then I sat with it on the marble stairs, facing the sun with my eyes closed.
- Do you have the key, by any chance?
It was the newest member of the Guard.
- Oh yeah. Only that I like to keep you on your toes... ...until I sunbath my face with just the right amount of UVs...
The guy smiles. I won´t admit it in a million years, but I like him. Otherwise, I wouldn´t tease him. Obviously.
In the office, it felt like I haven´t been there for a long, long time.."
