Wonder Woman revisited

More wisdom from Mr. Snickets' volume "Horseradish" on a morning when I SEVERELY need a dose of humor...

If you are allergic to a thing, it is best not to put that thing in your mouth; particularly if that thing is CATS.
In times of extreme stress, one can often find energy hidden in even the most exhausted areas of the body.
It is difficult, when faced with a situation you cannot control, to admit that you can do nothing.
Oftentimes, when people are miserable, they will want to make other people miserable too. But it never helps.

AND here's the doozy for today...
Perhaps, if we saw what was ahead of us and glimpsed the crimes, follies and misfortunes that would befall us later on, we would all stay in our mother's wombs and then there would be nobody in the world but a great number of VERY fat, VERY irritated women.

Last night was tough. I had to deal with a stopped-up toilet at 2am and plunged it so much that I took a chunk of hide out of the center of my right hand about the size of a quarter.
And then I cried.
And I couldn't stop. cuz it hurt and I was tired and frustrated at the toilet and frustrated at myself for losing my cool with the stupid toilet.
And as I stood there with a plunger in my bleeding hand, sobbing with disgusting water all over my feet and legs and the floor, I thought "Oh, if only Lizzie could see me now. Not so much of a wonder woman, huh."

The toilet is still plugged and I don't know what I'm going to do about it. But I'm running away today to my parents' church to listen to a concert by one of my favorite country gospel artists, Charlie Walker.
