I realized today that it's been a while since we had a Tantrum Tuesday. Modeled after Rhonda Nelson's "Whine About it Wednesday," Tantrum Tuesday is your chance to let your inner 2-year-old out for a good ol' screaming hissy fit over whatever you want -- no matter how minor it is.
This is a safe place, my Honorary Playfriends. We will not judge and we will not tell you to just get over it. Whine, moan, b*tch, complain -- whatever you need to do to get it out of your system, go ahead. It's cathartic. You'll feel much better.
My Tantrum is truly a tantrum: SNOW. For the love of all things holy, how did I end up on the wrong side of the Mason-Dixon Line? I've seen more of the white stuff this *month* than in the last 12 years combined. And they're calling for more. I've heard rumors that we might get up to a foot.
If they cancel school, I might just lose my mind. Like The Shining kind of "lose my mind."
Mother Nature, I don't know who pissed you off, but I apologize. I will plant a tree, pick up litter, do penance of some kind, but please remember that this is ALABAMA and we Don't. Do. Snow.
I feel better now. Your turn. Pitch your big hairy fit. I might even give a book away to make you feel better....
