I woke up grumpy today, and was determined to feel sorry for myself. I told everyone polite enough to listen of how late I'd slept and of how inconsiderate they were being by not tiptoeing around me. When they got tired of listening, I figured I'd come here and tell you. For you, reader, can't make a polite escape. Unless, well, you click away...
I also said some rather cutting things to the dog because his cheerfulness was offensive. One giant mugful of coffee later, my world view's markedly less jaundiced. Panda was wonderfully forgiving, probably because he didn't hear me threaten that I'd have him sent someplace where they eat annoying dogs. He's lying under my chair right now, his chin resting on my toes. We're both content not to move.


  1. Coffee is pretty much acting as the source of energy that helps me face each day! So I know what you mean! I wake up every morning, and talk to people who I can't yell at - my managers, my project leads - people who control my livelihood, and knowing that I need to talk nicely to them, makes it easier for me to talk nicer to people I actually care about. So that's how I get through the day

  2. Hi nithya! I've been following your blog for quite some time now, and am in awe of your writing skills :D .. keep updating more often :)

  3. @Anon, yes, coffee is magical, no? And you're right about the being nice thing. I hadn't thought of it in that way before, but when we expend so much energy being nice because we have to, it shouldn't be so hard to expend just a little more because we want to.

    @Jinni, thank you so much! I love getting comments like yours. I'm totally swelling right now. I'll keep posting. :)
