Can you speak up?

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….
