Today is one of those days where I am really glad Wednesday is Friday. (Sorry to all you international folks. We get to gorge ourselves on turkey and pecan pie tomorrow.) Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. A day to share our thanks for everything we are blessed with in life.
Yet, sometimes (even if for the most trivial reasons â€“ which btw is TOTALLY ok) weâ€™re not thankful for *everything.*
Sometimes you have days where you just want to kick a situation in the shins. I know you know what Iâ€™m talking about â€“ that moment when you eye the clock thinking, â€œI could really use a glass of wine right now,â€ and realize itâ€™s still only 9 a.m. (Brings new relevance to Alexander and the Terrible Horrible No Good Very Bad Day, I think Iâ€™ll move to Australia, doesnâ€™t it? I thought so.)
Hereâ€™s the deal.
Sometimes you find yourself so flush with frustration, youâ€™re completely immobilized with indecision about whether to curl up in the fetal position after chugging a glass of zinfandel or hurling a pinecone at the offender (person or problem â€“ weâ€™re not picky) with the speed force and accuracy of Randy Johnson (a moment of silence for our fallen feathered friend here, please).
Over at the group website, A Nervous Tic Motion, weâ€™re starting something just for you today.
Itâ€™s for anyone out there who instead of giving the finger, would love toÂ throw some pinecones at someone whoâ€™s been pissing them off. Adoring someone instead? Toss on over a smackaroo. (Sometimes all we need is a little kiss.) Either way, weâ€™ll have the wine waiting.
Throw your winecones in the comments. If youâ€™d prefer to remain anonymous, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, or me personally at email@example.com. (Iâ€™ve been working on my curvecone.) Weâ€™ll have a weekly wrap-up for you.
Feel free to button up your own site with Wineconed Wednesdays!
And remember â€“ nothing is too trivial to whine about. We know thereâ€™s plenty causing those nervous tic motionsâ€¦We just donâ€™t know what the holy hell to do about it.
Kisses and winecones!
