I thought we were supposed to learn patience and self-control BETTER as we got older,but that’s not how it’s working for me — I want it all, and I want it NOW!
For example — Dear Sweet Mama, the Concubine and I will be headed to the Outer Banks at the end of the month to do the family visit thang… and now that it’s planned, I want to go NOW! I have completely lost my ability to wait for anything, and I’m also noticing a tendency to get unreasonably frustrated when I am made to wait (What? Last night’s “Sister Wives” isn’t on the onDemand yet? DAMMIT!).
This puts me in direct confrontation with the people I like to call, “The Most Annoying Fuckers on the Planet.” You know who I mean:
HoodyHoo: Damn, I wish it was Friday!
Annoying Fucker: You should never wish your life away.
WHAT? Who the fuck says something like that? That’s kinda dark, right, like maybe you’re threatening me? It’s just an expression, you literal-minded douchebag! Tell you what: How ’bout I just wish YOUR life away?
Shit, now I have to make a list…
