The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Ever have one of those days that are just terrible, horrible, no good, and very bad? That was my day today. I spent all morning getting nervous over an 11 am web conference where we would be demo-ing the new credit card system we are implementing. I've been working on this project in one way or another almost since I started this job in January, and I was extremely anxious for my boss to see what we had accomplished and what I had been working on. So the demo started, and thirty minutes into it my boss gets up, leaves the room, and never comes back. By the time we were done I was extremely upset, almost to the point of tears. So I left the office, grabbed some lunch, and went to the lake to spent some quiet time alone.

Not long after I got back to the office, the power goes out. Apparently there was a problem northwest of us, and we were in the dark for almost thirty minutes before the power came back on.

Then I had fifteen people nitpicking about one thing or the other, half of which I didn't know anything about--but everybody else did. I hate being in the dark when it seems like everyone knows exactly what's going on.

So the day finally ends, I get in the car and vamoose it home. Then Missy calls to tell me that our "NOT" favorite former State House member is now running for a judgeship, which he'll probably win, and I didn't feel much better. (BTW--we're 13 days from BABY MO!)

When we hung up, I decided to heat up a microwave dinner. I've been buying these Swanson dinners that have a brownie in them--they're not bad for the price and quick to boot. So I put it in the microwave for three and a half minutes. At that point you're supposed to take the brownie out of the plate because it's done and then finish cooking the meal. So I have my plate and my spoon, and I'm spooning it out of the dish, and what do I find?

Corn in my brownie.

Life sucks.

I'm so sorry. I hope today is better. I think you should have called and bitched out the company that manufactured your frozen dinner. Corn in the brownie is unacceptable!!!

I have seldom had a Swanson dinner in which this sort of transport didn't occur, but then I schlep these things to work each morning, so there's about a 25-minute period where they get to thaw ever so slightly.
