Home at 5:30. I walk to the kitchen and open the fridge; everything in it’s place. The vegetables in the crisper, sliced meat and cheese stowed in the drawer, dressings arranged small to large in the door, I reach into the box on the second shelf and grab a cold beer. The sun still hangs in the sky like a nagging boss telling me it’s still too early to go to bed. Two days ago the sun set at 8:21. I didn’t see it but my phone told me. Yesterday it was 8:23. 8:25 today. I’ve heard there’s a day in June when it all turns around, a day that calls for clarity, one that begs to be taken advantage of; the years longest day. But year after year it comes and goes just like any other. I always forget to mark my calendar and request it off, but my gut says it’s the 21st. I open my junk drawer and pull out a stack of menus, accumulated over years of coming home at 5:30. Like a dog they’re always there to greet me on my way in the door. I place an order for Chinese food and scroll through Netflix while I wait.
