So How Was Your Day?

Almost every evening, Lisana (my fiancee) asks me how my day went. And every evening, I don't know how to answer that question.

I mean, does she want to know every little annoying thing that I did that day? Or am I supposed to just say, "It was great, how was your day?"

Heck, what is a good day when it comes to work? Is every day supposed to be good? Is good the baseline? Or is indifferent the baseline? Is each day by default bad until something good happens in it? When I say something, what does that mean to Lisana, or anyone else?

Most days I say that my day was so-so. There are good parts to the day, and bad parts to the day. For instance, I got to put some good coding time in today, which was a good thing, but I also had a lot of overhead things to deal with, which were bad things. I don't even want to try to say which of the two wins out, so that day is so-so.

Then I sit here at home, and I wonder how the rest of my day goes. I chat some with the NakkidNerds crew, I surt some, I watch some TV. It is all oh-so-productive. Lisana is an EverQuest addict, and is off playing that. But I don't know how much of my downness is due to myself or if any of it has to do with Lis & EQ.

This can't be what happiness is supposed to be like. Nah, definitely not.

And to top it off, it's the longest day of the year. Of course this day would suck too. So, how was your day?
