It’s not you. It’s me.

Just about every single interaction I had with other people today — in the office, on the phone, on Twitter, at the store — left me grinding my teeth. In a couple of instances — like with the clerk at Home Depot who thought suggesting that I get a cart would help me lift a bathroom vanity into the back of my car — my reaction has been justified, but in the rest of the cases, my rage has been entirely my problem.

I’m not usually a raving asshole — and, fortunately, I was largely able to keep the raving to myself today — so I’m hopeful this will pass and I’ll wake up tomorrow as my normal, cheerful self.

And that would be fine. Because today was not fun.


  1. I had a bad day yesterday too – I yelled at someone on the phone! Does that sound like me???


  2. It’s the heat. It’s making all of us crazy (or, depending on your mileage, crazier). It’s hard to picture you in a truly foul mood. Hope a beer or three make you feel better!
