Taking the Wind out of the Sails of My Righteous Indignation [Dec. 12th, 2006|12:31 pm]

Don't you hate it when you've worked yourself up into a perfectly good, rioting snit of indignation over something -- like a truck going really slow in the left hand lane and you've been on the road all day and late all day and he's going the speed limit, if that, impeding the progress of lawbreaking speeders like yourself and just as you reach a fever pitch of fury....get the hell out of the lefthand lane, you expletive, expletive, expletiving expletive!...

Oh.

You're in that lane because you're a highway assistance truck and you're coming to the aid of a stranded motorist who someday might be me. Er, I take it back.

To make it worse, you get home and your Mom calls to thank you for sending her a Christmas wish list (see earlier snit about that) and does not make ONE comment. All of the various psychic-scar inducing comments that I have come to expect...not a one. Just a gracious "oh, thank you sweetheart, this will make things so much easier. I wish your brother would follow your example and be so helpful."

Thank goodness my brother took a hit or I would suspect that aliens had stolen my mom.

Now, doesn't that make up for the "blue velvet jumpsuit"?
