I intended to attend a memorial service, by Zoom, today. I failed to enact, or fulfill, my intention.
I could blame external circumstances (my boss, who sent me an e-mail at 4:30). I could blame internal circumstances (if given the opportunity, I’d rather key entry data than have a conversation with my boss). I could blame the combination of those two circumstances (when presented with the possibility of telling someone to fuck off, I took refuge in data entry).
Or, I could just own up to the fact that attending a memorial service during COVID is a little more than I could handle at the moment, for a variety of reasons.
