A little perspective …

 
Why I was irritated this morning:
 
1. My Air Conditioning is proving to be vastly inadequate. I left the house this morning at 7:45, shirt drenched in sweat.
 
2. While bending over to feed the cat, I placed to top of my head firmly into the sharp corner of my kitchen counter. The wound shows clearly through the top of my thinly haired head. I am now known as “Scabbers”.  (Apologies to J.K. Rowling.)
 
3. My ISP (not to mention any names but it rhymes with “Horizon” and starts with a V”) has proven to be the second-worst provider of customer support that I’ve ever experienced. (First place belongs to Southwest Bell Corporation, who I will never ever EVER do business with again.) I haven’t had internet connectivity from home for two weeks now. I may resort to smoke signals.
 
But … here is why I should just shut the hell up and stop complaining:
 
1. One of my customers just returned to her office today after being out for 6 months to battle–and beat–cancer.
 
Makes my problems seem just … silly.
 
^5 Diana!
