Normally, I stick to my favorite expression “there is always less traffic on the high road.” And I have certainly found this to be true. Sometimes it’s just really not worth it, especially when dealing with morons. This thought process also goes along with the whole “you can catch more flies with honey than you can with vinegar” and there’s the ever popular Golden Rule. I personally pride myself on being a good person. (Except during a big clearance sale, or race, or bufftet, then it’s every man for himself!) I’m actually a firm believer that most people are good. Most. Honestly, I don’t understand people who get off on being A-holes or Bee-otches. I prefer kindness, but then again, I can be a little bit too nice sometimes. I digress.
Every now and again, when I get the gumption or someone really, truly pisses me off, I must let the old EFF YOU out. Usually, the best way to piss me off is to be cruel or mean to a family member, friend, animal, or the “little guy.” I used to get myself in trouble a lot for sticking up for the little guy. (Actually, I got my house egged the crap out of in high school one time because I told some dudes to shut it while they were picking on a female classmate. My mom’s still pissed about it all these years later.)
Anyway, for some reason lately, I’ve been feeling the urge to yell EFF YOU! I think it’s a work stress thing rearing it’s ugly head, in addition to fantasizing about people who I should have probably said it to and didn’t. Oh, and also I need to increase my mileage to relieve a bit more of that stress (I had to throw in running somewhere).
But thanks to Cee Lo Green (you know him from Gnarls Barkley & Goodie Mob), that urge is passing as I just pop this song on the old iPod and suddenly I am simultaneously telling everyone EFF YOU! In fact, I’m singing it at the top of my lungs. And you know what? I feel great when the song ends. So good in fact, I play the damn thing again.
Today, I am thankful for Cee Lo Green and his expletive filled lyrics. The song just makes me laugh. And yes, curse.
What are you thankful for today?
