Just Forget About It

9 Sep

After having such a good day yesterday, today brought about unexpected crappiness, and I had no chocolate for this roller-coster ride. Not even in the emergency stash. I guess I had raided that a while back. Sometimes I wish there was an instruction manual for life. Dude, a 3×5 cheat sheet would do.


But it’s dark now, and the stars are out, which means I need to recharge. I found this card and was glad I did. I might not have chocolate, but I got Emerson’s words, a bottle of Framboise, and AMC television. Although I might make a late-night run. Just to be safe. I don’t want to have any relapses.

    I have days like these when nothing turns out well except heartaches and a physically tired body and mind but it gives me hope that perhaps the next day, things will be better and it does. Beautiful inspiring thoughts. Thanks.

      I don’t always think ahead like that, sometimes I’m on the glass half empty side. But I’m glad this quote came along. You’re right hope is a good thing. Thanks for reading.

    I found that substituting wine for chocolate works fine for me, though I think my wife prefers chocolate. She really should stock up.

      Wine is always good, but I’m a lot like your wife. Chocolate is definitely a necessity for crappy days. Tell her to visit Costco. 🙂

        We don’t do the Costco thing, preferring BJ’s for our bulk purchases, partly because they have booze at BJ’s. Hmmm…maybe I need an intervention.

          HA! Nothing wrong with beverage shopping. It’s an essential for football season 🙂 and baseball season, and hockey season, and basketball season. It’s all season long, really.

    You need to keep a secret, secret stash of chocolate, especially for such emergencies. 🙂 Hope today was better.

      Thanks. I’m refueling my emergency stash this week. And thanks for your positive smiley face. It took me about two days, but I’m coming around now, trying to get back into my mode.

    This is a great quote that I intend to read every day after work. Thank you!

      Aha! Great. I love that I can help people out even when I’m having a crappy day. It makes things a little better. This quote is pretty awesome I’m glad I “ran into it” and was able to share it with you 🙂

    As long as the crappy days are not horrifying crappy, I think they’re necessary so you have perspective and you appreciate the good days, or at least the days that rate lower on the Suck-o-meter (manufactured by Acme retails for $49.95 but available on Amazon for $37.50 with free super saver shipping).

      Perspective. Sometimes I think I have a little bit too much of that, but I’m hoping that this is the for worse part in my for better or worse life, that way I can have cool beachy days where my toes are in the water, my ass is the sand and I got a cold drink in my hand (Zac Brown Band style)
      Suck-o-meter. Ahhhh too funny and good laugh on a crappy day. You should really write a book I would totally buy it, because I know that flipping through the pages would make me laugh.

        Ha! Nice to know Guat! I feel so confident being able to write a single sentence. You’re bolstering me!

    Good advice – thank god for your sense of humor, right?

    • The Guat September 12, 2012 at 9:17 PM #

      Yes! YES! Thank God. Sometimes it’s the only thing that keeps me going.
