you know what pisses me off? i’m sitting here at 6 am on sunday, up since 5, because i can’t sleep (leg pain, stiff joints, restless mind), and my son comes down after being woken to get ready for a day of skiing, and says, oh, i want to go back to bed. poor guy. yeah, i really feel for him. that pisses me off.
oh, he’s not being insensitive. i’d like to go back to bed too. i’d like to be able to go skiing. but i get pissed off when people around me say, oh, i’m so tired. after that day of skiing, to say, boy, am i sore. hey, pal, i get sore like that just walking up the stairs. and you don’t know the meaning of “tired.”
again, not that they are being insensitive- they really are tired and sore. but i can’t, even in this holiday time, find any compassion for their piddling soreness or tiredness, brought on by a day of skiing. so ho ho ho to you too.
