Oh, I was cranky yesterday. For no perceivable reason other than I woke up that way and had to get out of bed in spite of it. My lesson didn't go well in seminary. There was a ton of traffic (which is kind of funny because Monday was the Worst Drive Into Work Ever - I was a full hour late, I had to drive TEN MILES (this is not an exaggeration. I Map Quested it.) out of my way to get in - and yet I was Suzy Sunshine through it all. Yesterday, I wanted to shoot flaming arrows out of my window at everyone.) And then I spilled half of my yogurt all over my keyboard at work. Hey, have you ever tried to clean yogurt off of a keyboard? It's a pretty special experience because every time you pluck one of the keys off to clean under it yogurt goes flying everywhere. And then when you're done half of your breakfast is gone. By about 9am I was at code level Super Crank.
People's voices were bugging me. I felt like slamming my office door. Simple tasks became monumentally hard and time consuming. I felt snappish. Which is the worst because there's nothing but lovely and positive people around me all the time at work. It is a very happy place and yet I had to fight off the urge to throw things at heads.
I managed to make it home from work without maiming anyone and decided I should be sent to my room. Because this is where cranky people belong. I probably should have gone to the gym to sweat it out but I have a hard enough time not saying anything to the neanderthals who lounge around the weight machines all day long. I was not meant for human interaction yesterday, even with mouth-breathers. So I put on my jim jams and crawled into bed and put on The Sound of Music and promptly fell asleep to Maria singing about the hills.
What do you do on days like this? Please tell me I'm not the only one who wakes up cranky and stays that way.
Today has been more successful. My lesson went well and there was very little traffic. Plus, I had leftover donuts after seminary that I handed out to the parents and kids who cut through the church parking lot on their way to school. Much better than cleaning up spilt yogurt.
Also, we had a Deep Fried Party today at the Institute. There will be pictures and details tomorrow but I'll give you a hint of what's to come: Hot Cheeto Fritters.
