Some days you're the tiger...

Some days the tiger eats you for lunch.

Just call me tiger meat. Today was just one of those days. One of those days that I just could not control my bad mood. All started out good. Actually, I was in a great mood when I got up. Was in a great mood on the way to work despite a huge accident near the highway entrance that slowed me up considerably. The first couple of hours of school were good. Then something inside me snapped and I've been in a terrible mood ever since. Can't pinpoint why. Haven't been able to make it better. We are off to have dinner with my brother and his wife in Denver -- while I'm not at all in the mood, I'm sure it'll be fun and nice to see them (seeing as we haven't really gotten together to hang out since they got engaged, oh, about two years ago). Maybe it will snap me out of my mood. It better, otherwise Chris might volunteer to leave town again in the very near future just to escape the tiger's wrath... muahahahaha.

Ok. Maybe its a guy thing Ms Tiger, but how in the world can you write all those words in your MMMM blog telling your male fans that something snapped causing you to be in a bad mood without giving us a clue as to why.

Is this one of those things where guys are just suppose to "know why?"

Men are educated by the female world that women want to share feelings. They like to talk about feelings. Women are intuitive.

Well guys aren't Marni. Your male blog fans just want the facts. Tell why you are in a bad mood and get over it. Don't make us guess. We are not smart enough to figure it out and we are too impatient to wait.

We are eagerly awaiting more funny stories about your students and the Denver tales of a compulsive mountain biker and his amazing wife.

No see, the sad fact is, I still don't know what put me in a bad mood and I was hoping the male fans would be rational enough to tell me why. haha. All is well. Sometimes there just needs to be a little venting on the blog. Venting is one of the greatest in"vent"ions of the internet blogging system.

Hey Marn, I hope that things went well with dinner, and that your day is great tomorrow. I completely appreciate the being in a bad mood for no reason. Hope that all is well

you made me fall out of my chair!

Love those pics Marni!

good use of the "vent" in inventions. well the only spin I can put on this is that subconsiously something got you in a fowl mood and that is why you started getting crabby. it happens to me at times.
capitan obvious

Looks like I'm late to the party! Hopefully your day is going well today but if not we'll go to the knitting store. That's just like the bike shop or mountaineering store, you can't have a bad time there :D

Scott DL said...

Whoa, you mean all chicks have days when they are in bad moods for no reason?

Marni said...

I see there are some bitter men that read my blog. haha.

These are very interesting comments.
Here's my little in"vent"ion:
Bad moods come and go.
Memories of how you treat the person in the bad mood linger a little longer, however.
We all have bad days.
Last year I had a bad six months or so.
Thanks to my family and friends who helped me through.
Are men and women really that different or do men just like to fall back on the old stereotypical explanations (excuses?) because it's easier than changing. Men are smart enough to run major corporations, but too dumb to figure out what makes their girlfriends or wives happy? Sorry, I don't buy it.
(Now I sound like Carrie Bradshaw!)
Anyone have any feedback?
(Marni, Check out the new knitting yarn and books by Sublime at The Knitting Garden. They are so sweet! Chris, You're right! There is no such thing as a bad mood in the yarn store.)

Marni said...

Yay! Great comment! I think you are totally right. It doesn't take much to make a wife happy no matter what her mood. Luckily you have raised Chris so he knows that (at least most of the time). Women are geniuses. There's no way around it. Haha.
