after the work part (even working over time) i drove home fast thinking there would be something good waiting for me. maybe a wife or a girlfriend or something. nope. a bad dinner, some TV, dreams, and the whole thing starts again. yes, i would say this repesents millions of people somewhat accurately. very sad indeed.
