How to get in a better mood instantly

If you ever have to fight stupid insurance companies all morning and you become so cranky that you are shooting cryptonite rays out of your eyes and leaving craters in the ground wherever you go, then there is only one thing to do…

…eat fresh peaches for lunch. Fresh, as in right off the tree.

I will now frolic in the meadow and sing show tunes.

Tra-la!

    1. Yes, this is a clear-cut case. Fresh peaches will soothe your furrowed brow and lower your blood pressure. If they distributed fresh peaches at the Dell Tech support center everyone would be instantly and cheerfully supported.

    1. oh. my. god. No way, he didn’t. Did he? He did. OMG.

      That is so awful…. yikes. Argh.

      Any chance he would want to talk to a band parent who saw her kid’s life turn around and her grades improve BECAUSE she got involved in marching band? I would be very happy to talk with him if it will help.

      Man, I am so sorry. Even fresh peaches won’t fix this.

      1. On second thought, peaches would help a little bit. Especially if your dad liked them.

        This is killing me because I know how awesome marching band is.

        Sorry, again.

        1. Third thought – I never answered your question.

          I would be furious if my dad did it to me. I had a couple of similar things happen when I was in high school. They helped motivate me to GET OUT OF THE HOUSE, aka go to college.

          i will shut up now.

            Wait – I just thought of a good thing!!! (stop reading now if you aren’t in the mood for optimism.)

            Crappy things like this, especially when they involve conflict with a parent, tend to make for very good poetry.

            (hoping that helps an eeny-teeny little bit.)
