the water has been shut off in my apartment.
i can’t do basic things—like wash my face. or flush the toilet. or make coffee.
—that’s a triple whammy against me feeling like i can move forward in my day and do normal things. like talking, or make basic expressions with my face.
… what a dependent human being i am. perhaps that’s redundant. but also, there are those who have been stripped of these basic “necessities” in the whole of their lives. and somehow, society has shunned them for not being basically functional—judging them for not being able to hold a basic job, or basic friends, or basic hygiene. well maybe you should give them Water first, out of the surplus that you have in your faucets and waste on bubble baths and pretty fountains.
but seriously, Water is so necessary. and i’m glad that i’ve been reminded.
