Open Letter Thursday…

Dear Universe,

Clearly you are trying to teach me something this week.  The problem is…you aren’t doing a very good job because I’m not sure exactly what lesson I’m supposed to be learning!  Are you trying to tell me that I need to be more patient?  That I need to be more tolerant of stupidity?  That I shouldn’t judge a book by its nasty, condescending cover?  That, in the immortal words of Mick Jagger, you can’t always get what you want…but you just might find you get what you need???

Maybe it’s all of the above.  Or perhaps you’re simply fucking with me? 

Either way, I’m here to tell you…I get it.  I’ve learned my lessons.  I will be more patient…especially with annoying people who talk loudly on the train even when they sit in the quiet car.  I will be more tolerant of the stupidity that seems to constantly surround me.  I will smile and be nice to the nasty people, even if I do believe their hearts are black and they have no souls.  And I will have faith that there is a bigger plan that will provide me with what I need…even if it’s not what I wanted in the first place. 

So can you please cut me a break now?  Please stop randomly deleting shows off my DVR.  Please stop forcing me to park in the farthest parking spot from the train, only to have the person in the closest spot drive away AFTER I walk all the way back.  Please stop sending carpenter ants into my house.  Please let me get back to my regularly scheduled boring week. 

And now I’m going to go listen to the Rolling Stones.

Thank you,
