I’m Getting Old and Cranky

Damn, I’m not even 30, and already I find my blood pressure rising in response to things I really should just ignore. Case in point: today’s New Year’s Eve advice from the Journal Star. It was the part about “moral turpitude” that really got me going. But there really isn’t anything to get fired up about.

Sigh. I don’t think I’m ready to get stressed about this sort of thing. Before I know it, I’ll be sitting on the front porch shaking my fist at the neighbor kids. Oh well, somebody’s got to do it.
