having missed breakfast and lunch, i visited the cafe to get something to eat. that's when bruce called me with a strange request: he asked if he could borrow $400 in cash to do some discounted repairs on his car (his own bank had a $500 daily cash withdrawal). i didn't have that sort of liquid asset in my own bank account but i managed to borrow the money from my mother. back at home, i went over to bruce's place to deliver the money. back from the adirondacks, he showed me the 3 weeks old monarch butterfly caterpillar he was raising.
rest of the day i was held hostage by the weather. i knew early on that there'd be some thunderstorms today and was grateful i made it home before i could get soaked. however, the day hovered in a dark overcast, as if the weather itself couldn't decide whether it'd rain or not. i thought about going for a run but not if there was going to be a torrential downpour. finally the rain did come (no need to water the garden today) but not as much as predicted, and in hindsight it would've been a good day to do a bit of running.
