Do short people have shorter tempers?

Oh lolly… lots of triggers for me today. I had a meeting this morning about 45 mins away, downtown. I gave myself an hour for it because I wasn’t sure how the roads would be after 2 days of snowy weather. TWO HOURS. It took me 2 friggin hours. #1, It was not bad weather today. #2, I drive a car with standard transmission, winter tires and traction control and I drive carefully and keep a good distance between me and the car in front. #3, there were patches of snow on the roads and some sections were snow covered. #4, why does it seem like everyone either drives at turtles pace or breakneck speed with no in between, and I get stuck behind the turtle while the speeder rides my ass? #5, apparently the person behind me today can read lips, no sign language was required.

So I was late for the meeting. After the meeting, a group of us went to try out one of those panic rooms. It was fun. A little different than I was expecting ( I think the one we went to was a knock off version or something because it was nothing like ones I’ve heard about or seen pics of… haha). It was with a fun group though, a group that rarely gets together to do anything social together so I’m glad that we did this rather than head to a pub or something.

The drive home was another one with my shoulders up by my ears, glaring bitterly at every store I passed that sold wine. Well, perhaps more longingly than bitterly. I feel like the drunk me thinks that she has just been put on a time out, and she’s gone from being mad about it to being apologetic and lonely. “Just let me out! I promise to behave. I won’t go all CAAHHRRAAZZZYYY like last time!” “Shut up! You’re making me sound all caahhrazzyy by talking about you like you’re a separate entity for gods sake” ha, even when I was drinking I’d refer to drunk me like a different person “I did what?! Sheesh, darn that drunk Tate” ANYWAY… made it home safely! Now it’s time to relax, with tea. Day 44 😁

    Just stay on the course, even it is one that requires snow tires and traction control. Breath deep, don’t forget, I will keep hounding you to try meditation. Some day you will thank me, like a lot. Be well my friendly frog…

    hehehe it will drive me nuts too and I don’t have any nuts lol One time I got caught out . Took me 3 hours instead of an hour 10 and couldn’t go pee either as my starter motor was half dead and the guy who started the car for me told me if I turn the engine off it might not start again ..

      Im trying so hard to retrain my brain to want peace and pampering (ie soothing tea or hot bath) after days like that!

    She IS a separate entity. I call mine Doris. I tell her to fuck off frequently.
