It's Not You, It's Me

Ever feel like something is wrong? Like the phones should be ringing, but all you hear are crickets chirping?

That the chirping crickets are just a sign that everyone has already jumped ship, something you should have done last week?

That you should be doing something other than the something you're doing right now? And that if you don't do that other something right now, the whole world is going to get flushed down the proverbial God-is-angry toilet?

That the other shoe just needs to drop already before you completely go bald?

That the shit's about to hit the fan but you have no idea why and who's doing the throwing and what it is they're pissed about?

That everyone seems to be against you and your ideals and your state of mind and you wonder why they don't just go to a movie instead of pestering you about shit that's none of their business?

Have you ever felt like that?

Me, too. Either I'm on a first-class seat to Hell in a hand basket or I forgot to pick up my prescription.

Yeah. I hate that feeling. Invariably, it precedes getting kicked in the ass by that shoe I was waiting for to fall.

My dear friend, you have to switch that title up...Say what I always say, "It's not me, It's YOU" along with something like, "so go F yourself." :) Love ya!

ps- I have a tank top that says that specifically-in case you need to borrow it!

Grant said...

QUICK - give me all your money. We'll see if that helps.

Megan said...

Yes I have.

The good new is that it passes.

Avitable said...

I have, and even though you know it's not permanent, it's hard while it's happening.

sybil law said...

I think it's the prescription.
Because it's definitely not YOU, and it sure isn't ME.

First class isn't something to bitch about.

I blame El Nino.

Coal Miner's Granddaughter said...

Willie G - Nope. Can't. Because it IS all about you! ;)

LceeL - Oh, ish. Yeah. Definitely.

Little Mrs. Jonesss - I'll take that tank top now!

Grant - OK. How about my firstborn, too?

Finn - Thank goodness. I would not want to feel like this all the time.

Avitable - Agreed.

Sybil Law - It's definitely the prescription. We'll blame the pharmacist!

Patois - True. Even if it is in a basket.

Muskrat - Fucking Al Gore.

Shelli said...

For me it's usually the prescription thing.

Coal Miner's Granddaughter said...

Shelli - I swear, if I could remember to pick the damned things up when I'm supposed to, it would be a miracle akin to Jesus walking on water. Seriously.

For me, it's usually true, sadly. I have that stupid intuition plus let's face it, although it's not much skin off of my nose, people have been jumping my ship for quire a little time now.

Wow, that sounds dirtier than it really is. ;)

I think that feeling will pass very soon and you'll be right as rain. Sometimes you just have to shake the oogies and do something out of the ordinary to gain perspective. :)

Hilly - I find that, typically, my oogies are in-line with my monthly visitor. BLECH!
