Time out

I have a bad case of “the anger.” I imagine a lot of people get it. That blood boiling and completely random rage that if left unchecked results in all kinds of un-ladylike behaviour. I’d like to think that it’s just the world’s longest bout of PMS and I just need some salt or chocolate to simmer me out, but as it’s been about six weeks that theory is bunk.

Because I don’t actually have a tangible reason to be angry, I’m trying to keep a lid on it. Doing the whole “act the way you want to feel” thing. More often than not it works. I know it’s not foolproof, but it keeps things operational. It kind of leaves me feeling like I’m floating about two feet above my own body

As much as I would love to indulge my rage and be a class-A bitch to everyone and about everything I still have my wits about me. I still have that nugget of wisdom that was given to Thumper so long ago. “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.”

That’s part of blog-reticence of late. There have been interesting things going on, neato things that I’ve observed, but every time I start writing, it devolves into seething anger. So until I’ve sorted this out or blown my stack, I’m taking a moment to count to 10, or 100,000 or however long it takes.




  1. Wonder if it’s a Libra thing. I’ve had some random bouts of rage myself lately.
