Grumpy Man

The new anti-hero. Slower than a speeding snail. Able to ruin others days from afar. Grumpy man. Same grumpy time. Same grumpy channel. (Ok, merged Superman and batman TV shows there)

I have no idea what was wrong, but I was off all day yesterday. I’m sure my parents noticed it, and possibly my sister as well. But I was just in a funk that I couldn’t get out of. It could have been due to the fact that I went to bed at 2AM and got up at 6:30 to start my day. Maybe it was the fact that I had to drive for about 6 hours yesterday. Maybe it was because I saw the lot that used to be my home. Heck, maybe something from the night before was bothering me.  Whatever it was, I was in a funk.

I really can’t put my finger on what it was, but being in that funk during my family’s Easter lunch just seemed wrong. I did have a good time; I actually enjoyed being with my family. But my father and I got into a heated discussion (not quite a fight). I wasn’t all that talkative with my mother whom I can usually easily talk to. My sister was just annoying me with an honest question. I was just wrong. I was just off.

And I am not sure I was the only one who was having an off day. Actually, I know I wasn’t, my Aunt even admitted that she has been off the last few days, but at least she had a good reason. Others in my family seemed off as well. My sister stepped on my father’s foot, and I am not sure she ever apologized.

The food was good. The conversation was good. Seeing the family for the first time since Christmas was great. (It sure does seem that I do a lot around religious holidays for being an atheist.)

Whatever it was, I hope I am out of that mood today. And since today my only goal is to change the MINIs oil, maybe I can spend time pondering what caused my mood.

Or maybe I’ll just go hug a cat.
