March 11: On This Day In History
U.S. Steel is born. Explosions in Madrid kill 170 people. Mikhail Gorbachev becomes chairman of the Soviet Union's Communist Party. Janet Reno is confirmed as the first female attorney-general of the United States of America. The man who discovered penicillin, Sir Alexander Fleming, dies at 73.
I rise late as a consequence of having friends over last night. I continue my experiments with oatmeal. I will further consider buying a ceramic bowl. I will long for more time in the day even though I have nothing of any real importance to do today.
Already agreed upon arrangements will be made concerning the events of March 29, but they will take place beyond my ken. I will remember something I had forgotten. I will take a pill, and then sometime later I will take two others. Briefly, there will be a tickle in my ear canal, and I will wonder what it means, but then it will go away and I will never remember it happened.
The number of days I have left will have been decreased by one day. I will wonder, again, as I do almost every day, why it doesn't bother me that shortly after I die it will be as if I never existed.
