On Tuesday we were up to "next week at this time I'll be on my way to Australia".
Yesterday we got to "next week at this time..." and then we ran into a conceptual wall. There will be no Wednesday for me next week. I leave on a Tuesday, travel all day and all night, and arrive (in Fiji!) on Thursday.
I came upon an empty cosmic glitch in my obsessiveness.
But now it's today. Next week at this time I will be arriving in Sydney. We didn't fall into the abyss. Phew.
