Ivy Bean, Now I know why I wanted to skip over Wednesday

Late last night, I had a weird feeling.  It was probably around midnightish.  I haven't really felt like skipping a day, and yet, there I was, feeling off, like it just wasn't going to be a normal day.  I had no proof, mind you, and I felt a little silly making a decision about a day that had barely started.  And can it really be considered a new day when you haven't gone to sleep yet?  I was going to wait until the morning, and if I still felt that way, I would post my thoughts on my status on Facebook.  But then I thought, no, no, I really do feel this way.  I really have to write it down, see what other people think, you know, like maybe there was something in the stars or whatever.  So this is what I wrote:

Sooooo. Today is Wednesday. The middle. Like a middle child. Poor poor Wednesday. I'm not really feeling it today. Yes, I'll seriously have to think about whether it's a good day to have at all. I'm thinking I might just fly right over Wednesday and into Thursday. No, I have a meeting on Thursday. Okay, so Friday.... Friday night. I'm just going to skip right on over to Friday night. Anybody with me?

I got a variety of responses.  But here's the thing, nothing really happened today.  Nothing out of the ordinary.  It wasn't a stressful day, or a bad day.  In fact it was overall a happy day.  I even got in a nap after work and found out I lost an inch.  But throughout the whole day, something wasn't quite right.  I just couldn't put my finger on it.  Not until the end of the day, did I figure out what it was.  It all finally came together as I was browsing through Tumblr...  And she died at 12:08am.  How's that for coincidence?

Makes ya think about the strange ways we're all connected.

Here's looking at you, Ivy Bean.  Hope you're living it up, wherever you are.
