It appears that, while I have a sense of humor, I do not react well to being laughed at outright. To say that I am fuming would be an understatement. Currently trying to douse the flames in wine.

I am coming to terms with one of those life moments where I need to let go of the arrogance and the cockiness. Even though i know my intelligence was insulted. Humility was all that was required. It would be inappropriate to try to prove my ability. If given the chance, I can prove it. If not given the chance, I learn a lesson in humility.

I’m not good at humility.

Life lessons, right? Life lessons. The world took me down a notch, and I am almost on the eve of my birthday. I am almost 38, not almost 28, and thank god, not almost 18. This is not the first time in my 30s that the world said, “wait a second. You can’t be that arrogant.” Yet another reason i have loved my 30s. I have always loved a comeuppance.

I can let it go.

Right after I pour myself just one more glass of wine.

    Y’all crack me up. Adrienne, I did not lose at Guitar Hero. I am a pretty gracious loser, despite my extremely competitive nature.

    Jason, it’s not really anything. Will explain later.

    SLP – the Red truck is pretty good for the price. It happens. Your little kitty is hanging in there still and if she had fingers instead of paws, she’d be giving the bird from up in the tree.
