What exactly does one do with oneself? 

I can have dinner ANYWHERE.

I can watch ANYTHING. 

Right now I am watching a massive black plume of smoke in the distance, wondering if something is on fire. 

Later I will sit around on the bed in a state of mini panic, thinking alternately, “It is too quiet, what are the boys up to? Oh right, they are not here.” Rinse and repeat 50 times.
