Magic pockets

In my early 20s I had a relationship with someone that had magic pockets.

He had an uncanny ability to anticipate problems and prepare in advance. They were small problems, sure, but, it was never short of the most helpful thing ever. Have a blister? I have a band aid! Hung over? I have an alka seltzer! Hungry? I have a taco!

When the kids were small it was easy to have my own magic pockets - that one will need a nap, this one will need a snack, I’m going to need a break after that...

I’ve spent years mastering that skill.

Right now everything is so topsy turvy there is no anticipating anything. Wake up, pee on that days fires, toss and turn all night, get up and do it again.

It’s heightened my awareness of two things - I depend heavily on my own magic pockets and I sure do miss feeling like answers are just a pocket away.
