Boy, am I fussy!
In an earlier time, I would best describe my current mood as “annoyed.” But, Nancy has always used the word “fussy” so I’ll stick with that.
And boy, I have been fussy in spades lately. As usual, the reasons are trivial, but I suppose they add up. Here are just some of the things bothering me.
— The traffic around DC. I pretty much only drive into the city to do TV, and that’s 3 times a week. Going in is never a problem. But, returning home? For a lousy 10 miles, I can sometimes spend over an hour in the car. Ridiculous.
— My kids. Yeah, I love my kids. Really do. But, sometimes some of the boneheaded things they do drives me insane. And my kids are old enough — in their 20s — to know better. You have kids? Enough said!
— Twitter. Lately, I’m becoming sick of it. Same lame-brained comments posted over and over. I’m thinking of going on Twitter-strike, just like I did Facebook. I probably won’t though, because I’m addicted. (and that makes me fussy, too!)
— Sound-editing on TV. Am I getting old, or do most TV shows have muffled sound? Or maybe they have so much background music, the dialogue gets drowned out. Whatever it is, I CAN’T HEAR A DAMN THING!
— The weather. This has been the mildest winter since 2006. Terrific really if you ride a bike. But, it’s still gets cold and it still gets windy. And I still loathe it next to the Spring and Summer. (and I’m not even that wild about the Summer.)
— The Presidential race. Do I need say more? My G*D, 10 more months of this?? Can we just vote and get it over with?
— Every DC sports team. They all stink. And yet, a mere 40 minutes away the Baltimore Ravens are playing great. Typical. Seriously, just once I’d love to live in city with some kind of contender.
— My own fussiness. I think part of my total funk is that I’m getting old. Or at least older. And I find that annoying. Can’t wait to see what I’m like in my 80s, should I get that far. Probably a barrel of laughs….
