That was just a shitty day

We were hung over and cranky. It took us 30 minutes to dress, and we hadnâ€™t said a word to each other. Conversation starters jumped into my mind, but I simply didnâ€™t care enough to say them aloud. Colors seemed too bright and my motions were slow and completely uncoordinated. I paced around our small room like it was a mansion and I kept wondering why I was at each spot. Every thought was immediately interrupted with, â€śwow, this sucks.
This was supposed to be the Mt. Fuji climbing day, but the weather reports kept giving mixed signals (those weather people never get anything right). We walked around Shinjuku (where the main bus departs) for four hours just waiting for people to call and things to happen. We wanted to use this time to buy stuff for ourselves and friends back home, but everything was overly expensive. Even when we tried to buy stuff that would help us with the Mt. Fuji hike, we wound up not finding the simplest thing. All I wanted was a hat to keep my head warm, and there was nothing. I wasnâ€™t even being picky â€“ there was just nothing.
When we finally got a phone call from our climbing mate we met at the hostel, we were greeted with bad news.
After walking around for another hour, we called Nobby to cheer us up. We went to Shibuya and sat around some more, only to get a call from her saying that she would be late. Great, more waiting on people â€“ my camera was getting hungry, and so was my stomach. It was so frustrating that I donâ€™t even remember what we had for dinner. All I know is that we needed a solution to our problems and we needed one quickly.
The only thing I could think of doing was â€śinvestingâ€ť money to make this all better. And, yes â€“ it worked like a charm.
