I was in a very bad mood on Tuesday morning and the first to cop the first ‘piss off don’t bother me’ chant was the MOTH (man of the house). You see I had a long weekend, it wasn’t planned but I was struggling with an almost cold and needed a recoup day, or as I call it – a sanity day.
Firstly you might ask “What is an almost cold?” Let me explain…
An almost cold is when you feel like you’re coming down with a cold, you’re a little sniffily, maybe you have a dull headache and possibly a little hot and cold. You wait for the full bout to descent but it doesn’t. That’s an almost cold.
Anyway, back to my bad mood. The bad mood usually derives from not feeling terrible excited about my life at that moment and especially not happy to do something I’m not in the mood for, like going to work.
Yes I can hear you all say – “we all have to work so suck it up princess”. And I agree, but this is my blog and I have the floor so I’ll whinge if I want too.
Anyway, on these days I’d join the gym – again, write a more interesting blog, meditate, do yoga, read a book, anything but go to work. Hense my bad mood.
I guess we all have these days and I wonder what the world would be like if we were all doing what we really wanted to do. I can’t imagine anyone wanting to sit in front of a computer all day, or dig holes to make roads or buildings, or make luxury cars for others to drive. I’m not sure anyone would survive watching footy all the time, although I have my doubts about some blokes. I can’t imagine a world without restaurants; after all they provide 50% of my weekly meals. I guess we’d have to catch, kill, skin and cook our own meals, live in self built accommodation, walk everywhere and make our own clothes from animal skins or weave from various grasses and plants.
Essentially we’d be spending our days surviving from one day to the next leaving no time to do the things we really want to do.
On that note, I guess I’ll just have to go to work. But be warned, when I’m in a bad mood, I mean a very bad mood – don’t piss me off.
