Bad Day

Man!

Blogger has been giving me a lot of problems. I couldn’t login properly the whole day and it’s been pretty irritating. Since I have some time now before I leave for my 8:30 appointment I shall quickly write something before I leave.

I had a half good and half bad weekend. Saturday turned out to be a pretty crummy day. The morning was pretty OK, read my devotional passage in then watched Saturday morning cartoons! Yes! After that I slept some more as I’ve been feeling super tired throughout the week. When I got up mom was asking to sweep the floor but I didn’t want to cos’ I had to go off soon to Children’s Church to play guitar for them. Things started going downhill from there. When I got to PJ after an arduous 40 minute ride from Setapak I found that my buhd J-son wasn’t around and I couldn’t pick up his guitar to use. To cut a long story short I ended up not playing at all so I wandered on over to 1U cos’ for some reason I felt really upset. Things didn’t get any better when I got home … I just slept and didn’t feel like having anyone around. That didn’t happen of course because my mom started nagging about sweeping the floor again which really irritated me then later in the night my dad made a lot of noise about the TV volume (which wasn’t that loud by the way). It really got ticked me off because dad does the exact same thing when he watches TV and I don’t really complain do I? Of course he was preparing a sermon or something so I guess it’s different but the things he said to get me to lower the volume weren’t exactly nice. Sigh … it really felt like a super bad day.

Which got me thinking … it’s always OK for girls to have bad days cos’ of PMS and stuff but guys can have bad days too and feel ill-tempered as well. It’s SOCIALLY acceptable for a girl to have a bad day but not for a guy!!! I’m sure I’m gonna rile up a lot of discussion by making this statement but I think it’s TRUE! Note the lyrics from the song “Bad Day” by Fuel. This is how it (it as in the song) goes:

I had a bad day again
She said I would not understand
She left a note that said I’m sorry,
I had a bad day again

She spilled her coffee broke a shoelace
Smeared the lipstick on her face
Slammed the door and said I’m sorry,
I had a bad day again

And she swears there’s nothing wrong
I hear her playing that same old song
She puts me up and puts me on

I had a bad day again
She said I would not understand
She left a note and said I’m sorry
I had a bad day again

So is it socially acceptable for guys to have a bad day too? Don’t guys have hormones and other such stuff? Ha ha. Well we don’t have PMS but I think we are emotional beings too it’s just that we are always expected to be cool and men are supposed to be stoic creatures who don’t break down and don’t cry. What a load of hogwash … MEN do have emotions too! We may not always be in touch with our emotions but that doesn’t mean we don’t hurt and it certainly doesn’t mean that we get upset by the smallest things at times.

Oops … it’s 7:31 now. Time for me to get ready to for my meet up. Will tell all of you more about my weekend. Suffice to say Sunday really helped to make it a good weekend – i.e. I caught Resident Evil: Apocalypse and Sky Captain & The World of Tomorrow! Yippee!

Till next time. Vaya con dios amigos.
