Once a month, I get crabby.
Ladies, you know what I'm talking about.
But that's sorta understandable, right? I mean, we all know there's a physiological reason why this happens to most of us. We have an excuse.
But what about when you don't have an excuse?
What about when you're walking around, generally pissed off, and you can't blame the calendar?
I have no reason to be pissy.
Except I do.
Petty things that are currently pissing me off and I have no idea why:
1. What the fuck is wrong with people who think the general laws of traffic
do not apply to them? (This is especially aggravating when said people are your
colleagues and you want to kick them when you see them in the school
2. I've been busting my ass for 3 1/2 weeks to lose my summer weight and I
can't close one goddamn pair of pants without getting a muffin top, yet my
lovely Hubby eats 2 salads and works out 3 times and *poof!* his abs are
3. Especially chipper people...you know, the ones who squeal "Smile!"
whenever they see you.
4. The fact that every night the only conversation I seem to have energy for is the same set of required questions: "You going to the gym in the morning?" "Did you prepare the coffee?" "Are the kitchen counters already wiped?" "Whose turn is it to read to Ben?" "Is everything ready for tomorrow?"
5. The general bullshit hypocrisy of people who pretend to be something they're not: like the person who has a rosary hanging from her car mirror but doesn't remember who she slept with last night, or the one who throws out risque comments every chance she gets but is really just a jealous prude.
6. The alarm clock needing to be set to 4:45 a.m., and knowing that the latest I'll be able to sleep in on the weekend is 7:15, if I'm lucky.
I think I kinda feel better now.
Maybe this helped.
And if it doesn't, that's okay, I'm sure in a few days this random senseless pissiness will pass...
...just in time for that time of the month.
At least then, I'll have an excuse.
