So I am having one of those days when everyone is getting on my nerves. Too many ridiculous requests. Bogus invites. Unsolicited smart remarks. I am feeling like no one is taking my feelings or my schedule into consideration. You get the idea. We all have these days or weeks even.
Then I tell someone close to me a couple of the interactions that have my back up like the fine feline I am (p.s. Leos rock!). She asks, “Aren’t you being sensitive?” DJ: stop the music…. How is someone being sensitive when someone else is being offensive? I love that. Someone insults you and you are the one overreacting. Anyway, I figure I must blow this all off and carry on. Keep calm and what should I do? I think I need a coffee.
So I am swinging through Dunkin Donuts drive thru for a coffee. Does anyone go in the store anymore? I am in the middle of my short order when the person on the other end of the speaker interrupts me and asks, “Can you speak up?” In a harsh voice. I sat there staring at the metal squawk box thinking, who knew a philosophical question could be asked in a drive thru window? Cream? Sugar? Can you speak up? Can I? I don’t know. I thought about it all day. It was like a message from above commanding me to ask myself can you speak up? Some days you drive through a fast food window and get a refreshing beverage and other days, you get so much more. Until next time…..enjoy the brain freeze….
