I'VE been sulking. I'm cranky. Foot-stomping, tanrum-dropping cranky. I can admit it. I have had squinty, glaring eyes and I've been fixing them on people. People who push and shove to get to the next train. People who whine about the food on the table. People who say "I can't". People who say "I don't like it" before they've even tried it.
People who say the beautiful Hornsea Heirloom dinner set you bought for $55 at Vinnies and proudly installed in your kitchen cupboard as your first-ever full set of crockery is ugly... in front of you... and go on and on and on about how ugly it is.
People who "forget" to pay their way. People who don't say thank you. People who announce they're bringing people over and get stroppy when you suggest these people are their guests and they should be helping cook and serve up the mountains of food being prepared for them and don't even ask what you were planning to do that day (ah, I had paid-for tickets to the Sydney Writers' Festival, thanks for not asking).
People who are anxious and cranky and tired and stressed and need you not to be. (Ah, I had some shit to deal with too, thanks for not noticing, it's all good now, sorry for the inconvenience.)
So, yes, I've been cranky. I can admit it.
How about you? You got stuff you need to get off your chest?
