beyond which I found a room where they teach geometry,
which seems very appropriate,
and then I became embroiled in giving some unasked for advice, by saying, "A self-administered dose of delusional positivity can be better than taking a pill, sometimes, and with no side effects other than the desirable one of having a better day than you might have had otherwise; and getting busy doing something is better than lying in bed and feeling miserable, even if you get busy doing something that ultimately achieves nothing, or nothing other than making you feel better than you would have felt without the pointless busyness brought on by the self-administered dose of delusional positivity."
"And how do you know all that?" I was asked; to which I replied, "Geometry. Let's get back to geometry."
I really should try not to go off at a tangent so often, perhaps.
