Maddie was dressed and ready to go. She'd gotten up early, showered, selected her best clothes, eaten a light breakfast, and read the paper. Now, with purse in hand she stood looking at the door. Dizzy, she was so dizzy. "I'll just sit for a bit." she thought. And so, she sat. The minutes ticked into hours. At some point, she hung her jacket back in the closet and placed her handbag over the doorknob. She'd almost made it. She was very nearly there, but not quite. Maybe next time. Yes, next time she would go.
