Somewhere, I once read a very dangerous question/response:
“Do these pants make me look fat?”
“No, your hips do.”
In that same vein, I’ve been asking myself the question, “Does my cold/allergy medicine make me moody?” And I suspect the answer is no, my mind does.
But I sure do like having the excuse…
With that said, let me remind you that you need a vacation. Working a week away at another location does not count–especially with additional stress! R & R will do a body good! 🙂
Ahh, America. Land of the free, slaves to your jobs! I am at home now on paternity leave for 4 weeks and taking a week additionally as vacation so I am home for at least 5 weeks in a row. After that, I got three more weeks of vacation left to take out this year, since I have only used half of my yearly vacation! This is one of the benefits you get from living in Europe….
So soon we forget
…then again, you were sick at the time,
The States don’t have a monopoly on this one. If I may quote a defunct British band, in a popular modern-rock (whatever that means) song from about four years ago:
"It’s a bittersweet symphony this life / Trying to make ends meet you’re a slave to money, then you die…"
And the ironic thing is the band didn’t really make any money off that hit, because they sampled a symphonic version of something written by Keith Richards and Mick Jagger without permission, so those two Stonesers got just about all the royalties.
And yes, I know I’m treating symptoms. No choice; gotta keep functioning.
