Happeeeeee Hump Dayyyyyyyyy! (In my head, that sounds like a ballgame announcer :D)
I hope your week is going smoothly…. Or not. Life is full of speed bumps and unexpected turns, isn’t it? How we react to these bumps in the road is important. Like all of you, I react both privately and publicly. You know what I mean. You have that internal conversation that may or may not be suitable for work and then you have the publicly acceptable and, likely, much more productive, reaction. Sometimes, though, we just have to let the frustration out. If you ever find yourself maxed out and needing a publicly acceptable word for how you’re feeling, how about Liz Lemon’s Blergs, Nerds and Jags?
Liz Lemon and her “blerg!” reminded me of the Orbit Gum ad where they use creative wording to express themselves (“Who are you calling a cootie queen, you lint licker?”). Next time you find yourself a bit frustrated, I challenge y’all to expand your vocabulary a little and maybe find a way to laugh about things. After all, there’s enough ugly in the world that we don’t need to add to it, right?
