Bad day today. Very bad day. Can’t even form complete and grammatical sentences. (Pronouns = too much work.)
Started to write post about bad day. No good. Started to write a different post about bad day. Nope. Just started typing words that seemed appropriate.
discouraged, embarrassed, disgusted, frustrated, hungry, wimp, idiots, inner angry dialogue, outer strained smile, sweat, tears, hangnail, BIG idiots
End up with big mutant pile of words. Not a post. Not a story. Not even a cathartic rant.
There’s only one thing to do in a time like this. Time for some Bad Day Tonics.
Quotes that say it all:
“Some days you’re the dog, some days you’re the hydrant.”
“When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.”
” ‘What?’ said Piglet, with a jump. And then, to show that he hadn’t been frightened, he jumped up and down once or twice more in an exercising sort of way.”
–Winnie the Pooh
Sheldon: This is for you
Penny: Ice cream?
Sheldon: I’ve been familiarizing myself with female emotional crises by studying the comic strip, “Cathy.” when she’s upset she says, “ack” and eats ice cream.
Sheldon: If you were a cat, I would have brought you lasagna.
–The Big Bang Theory
“Don’t worry when you are not recognized, but strive to be worthy of recognition.”
Add a milkshake, 4 snuggly dogs, a nap, crazy solo dancing. Repeat if necessary.
So, what do you all do to cure the Bad Day Blues? Come on–spill.
