I got home tonight and Kathy was hunting around the house. "Have you seen my walkman?" I hadn't. "It's just been one of those days. I can't find my walkman, and this morning I was getting out of my car and my purse tipped over and everything fell out and my Palm Pilot landed in a puddle and now only half the screen works."
Sympathizing, I said "geez, Kathy, that sucks. I'm sorry."
She said "Enh, don't be sorry. A temporary setback. Just a temporary setback. Okay I'm going to go do the dishes."
I'm writing this down so I can remember more what she's like when dealing with sucky things. I could never be as laid-back as she is, but she does make a good example sometimes!
...and she just called my dog "YA BIG POOPER!!!"
Okay I'm going to go buy things for my fish.
