two years ago...

Two years ago, today, I changed my clothes in the bathroom on the lower level of the Harold Washington Library.

I was coming from work, where I was required to wear jeans. And I didn't want to be wearing jeans for tonight (two years ago).

Because I wanted to look nice.

And the bus let me off downtown. On State and Van Buren.

And I didn't have time to go home.

So I went to the Library. And changed my clothes.

And then I left the library and felt slightly ridiculous about myself, but knowing it was worth it.

And that feeling?

Of absurdity that makes sense?

It hasn't gone away.
