Bad Days

A friend of mine had his two year wedding anniversary today. He had been a confirmed bachelor until the age of 36 when he abruptly found himself held in the bonds of holy matrimony.

"What's the hardest thing about being married versus when you were single?" I asked him.

He thought for a moment, and finally said, "The hardest thing about being married versus being single is never knowing when you wake up in the morning if you're going to have a bad day or not."

Because even if you're slated to have a very good day, if she is slated to have a very bad day, then guess what? That's right, you're going to have a very bad day, too!

Of course, I had to guess at that meaning since Annie never has a bad day, but I know what he meant. Ahem. Anyway, thanks for the words of wisdom, Matt!

Hey! I cannot let the female population stand undefended. Let's just say that for many women, their day depends on the mood of the person of the male sex, not her hormones or the cycle of the moon. Men, just like women, can be crabby, irrational and a pain in the rump. If you need more rationalization, let's just explain a man's reaction to who wins the Superbowl, the final score of a UT football game, a pre-emptive black-out of an NBA game, merging into rush-hour traffic, X-box mania, fascination with their own body parts and two particular body parts on women and male pattern baldness. We women might have the upper hand on many aspects of life, but when it comes to moodiness, it's a shared relationship guys! -- Denise
