Open Mouth, Insert Foot

“Perspective is worth 80 IQ points.”
– Alan Kay

Why, why, why do I provoke the fates?  No sooner do I wish for a less insane week and bemoan the stress…than J. calls saying our car won’t start, a massive project that requires a 24hr turnaround lands on my desk, Sav’s computer loses a critical file, I have to imput dozens of photos into a case where someone seems to be trying to fleece the university (in a badly managed con) and…

I get a bunch of files and briefings handed to me.  There was a horrific accident last night, one of the people involved passed away, painfully.

Jaw dropping, major attitude adjusting perspective.  Shutting up.

*Please keep the family in your thoughts, darlings.  Even if we are having a bad day, theirs is far more painful.

  1. Yep, you tempted the Fates (those miserable witches). BUT, you’ll get through it, foil the grifters AND submit the proper sacrifices to the car deities that the car might resurrect.

    Sending all my spare positivity your way.
