Jackson, MS has about 170,000 people.
Jackson, MI has about 33,000 (and falling) (and an elaborate fountain I've seen on postcards but not yet in person) (there's an excuse for a half-a-day road trip, I guess).
I have another tie I made that I had in mind for today, but it was too fun for my mood. I'm kinda draggin' and rather overwhelmed, but only from internal turmoil.
Went on facebook a few times recently, for discussion of some plans with a small group for a night next month, and today to see what a friend had messaged me about, which was to share a news article about how blowing hand dryers in bathrooms actually spread germs, cuz she knows I like those hand dryers. I didn't point out that it's only certain of them I like, for she doesn't understand, and that joy seems a little removed from me just now anyway. I just told her how I'd seen yesterday that Bug Killer in La Croix!?!!. Which I'd just been drinking on 2 new 12-packs of. I mean, grain of salt, but maybe the "natural flavor" not-sweetened bubbly waters aren't as free-and-clear as I've been imagining. I could go with club soda and a little juice, I reckon. If I wanna let it get to me.
I have a calibration problem, it was suggested to me today. That doesn't sound so bad, relatively. And it resists pathologization.
The rest of what I had in this post seems a bit exposed to be putting out in public view, so let's call this a wrap.
