Burrow a hole

You know those days when you KNOW you should have just stayed in and called in sick even though you're not sick because it's a day when you are bound to make missteps and do stupid things and generally be a blundering mess? Those days when you wake up with some kind of foreboding, when everything in your house malfunctions in an effort to keep you at home, where it is safe and there is nothing stupid or silly or careless that you can say or do that will actually reach other people. Those days your hair doesn't stay put and your boots are more clickety-clackety than usual. Those days when you realize a mistake in your email as you click on send. Those days when you forget to attach attachments. Those days when you realize you have missed a deadline. Those days when you thought you hit snooze but actually you turned your alarm off. Those days when really, your best best would've been to keep your head down and burrow deeper and deeper into your bed? is one of those days.
