What did you see, hear, touch, taste and smell (and want, feel and hate) this morning on your way to work?

I saw…

  • 10 dogs shitting
  • 9 owners picking up said shit
  • 15+ girls in gym clothes
  • 1 girl in gym clothes hailing a cab
  • A kitchen table in a window I want
  • A variety of male purses
  • Dora the Explora backpacks
  • My homeless man in front of CVS
  • Someone possibly famous

I smelled…

  • Hot garbage
  • BECs (bacon egg cheese)
  • Chinese food (?)
  • Perfume on my scarf leftover from the weekend

I tasted…

  • Listerine
  • The arepa I ate last night
  • 1 single drop of sweat

I touched…

  • The pocket of my wool jacket
  • My shoelaces when they came untied
  • The sidewalk when I lost my balance tying my shoelaces
  • The knuckles of a gentleman on the side walk
  • The door of Starbucks because no one held it for me
  • My Blackberry/ iPhone to check e-mail/TD Bank app

I heard

  • Jack hammers
  • Lana Del Ray
  • Grocery unloader saying “ayy chica”

Bonus senses

I wanted…

  • Said BEC
  • Said couch in window
  • My Snap Chats to load faster

I felt…

  • Tired
  • Not in the mood to wear pants
  • Hungry for said BEC

I  hated…

  • Every floor of my building being lit up in the elevator
  • Too many said Snap Chats that would’ve load
  • The barista not remembering my name at Starbucks
  • The sassy e-mail from my boss that I ignored
