Every Tuesday and Thursday the Princess gets whisked to preschool by the Queen leaving me in a joyfully quiet house. I can collect my thoughts and silently work to my heart's content with only the sounds of my keyboard click-clacking away. Twice a week, from 8:10 to 3:50, I live in a bubble of self-absorption. And I love it.
Except for the days when the Queen cannot take the child and I have to drive. On those days, I gather together my papers, my computer and my headphones and trek the thirty minutes to drop her off at school. To save gas and an hour I then head over to the local McDonald's to partake in a Number 3 meal (steak-ish McMuffin, Deep Fried Cardboard, and a large coffee), log into the free wi-fi, and plug in my headphones. For seven hours I type away to the sounds of my iTunes account and the glares of annoyed fast food workers.
