Having a Bad Day? Hakuna Mattata

It is Friday!  Are you having a bad day, week, month, year?  Are things not going well?  Finances, relationships, work, friends, family…

At least you aren’t this guy:

His day is not progessing perfectly.  But if you are in the category of folks having a bad day let me suggest a few things that can brighten you up.

1.  You are still alive.

2.  You live in a Country that at least until January 20, 2009 remains free.

3.  Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton continue to bash each other making it less likely with each passing day that either will be elected.

4. It’s baseball season.

5. Napa Valley predicts that domestic wine will drop in price because the tighter economy requires that luxury items decrease in price to maintain good sales.

6. The New Indiana Jones Movie will be out in 2 weeks.

7.  Candy companies continue to make more and more products with Dark Chocolate.

8.  “Caveman” did not get renewed for a 2nd season.

9.  Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream-nuff said.

10.  And you aren’t this guy either:

A man was working on his motorcycle on his patio and his wife was in the kitchen. The man was racing the engine on the motorcycle when it accidentally slipped into gear. The man, still holding onto the handle bars, was dragged through the glass patio doors and along with the motorcycle dumped onto the floor inside the house. The wife, hearing the crash, ran into the dining room and found her husband lying on the floor, cut and bleeding, the motorcycle lying next to him, and the shattered patio door. The wife ran to the phone and summoned the ambulance. Because they lived on a fairly large hill, the wife went down the several flights of stairs to the street to escort the paramedics to her husband.

After the ambulance arrived and transported the man to the hospital, the wife righted the motorcycle and pushed it outside. Seeing that gas was spilled on the floor, the wife got some paper towels, blotted up the gasoline, and threw the towels in the toilet. The man was treated and released to come home. Upon arriving home, he looked at the shattered patio door and the damage done to his motorcycle.

He became despondent, went to the bathroom, sat down on the toilet and smoked a cigarette. After finishing the cigarette, he flipped it between his legs into the toilet bowl, while seated. The wife, who was in the kitchen, heard the loud explosion and her husband screaming.

She ran into the bathroom and found her husband lying on the floor. His trousers had been blown away and he was suffering burns on the buttocks, the back of his legs, and his groin. The wife again ran to the phone to call the ambulance. The very same paramedic crew was dispatched and the wife met them at the street. The paramedics loaded the husband on to the stretcher and began carrying him to the street. While they were going down the stairs to the street accompanied by the wife, one of the paramedics asked the wife how the husband had burned himself. She told them and the paramedics started laughing so hard, one of them slipped and tipped the stretcher, dumping the husband out. He fell down the remaining stairs and broke his arm – Taken from a Florida Newspaper

    Have to disagree with you a bit. I don’t think there is a less likely with the democrats. Obama is very likely going to get elected, no matter what he does. If there is one thing New Orleans politics teaches you is that people are absolute morons when faced with damning evidence.

    But yes, Indy will be out soon. I am so there.

    I actually am having a bad day. On your list that I am going to embrace include the ice cream and the baseball…maybe at the same time.
