I’m in a bad mood today (Monday, November 22). I’m Irritable. Angry. Part of my problem is that I’m not feeling well (headache, exhausted, stomach cramps, cold symptoms). On a normal day I have trouble practicing patience, but when I’m not feeling well I turn into a bear. On days like this, I’m better off staying away from other people, especially nitwits.
One of the most interesting political races during the recent election cycle was the governor’s race in California. On the Democrat side was Jerry Brown, the 72 year old former governor of California. On the Republican side was a woman by the name of Meg Whitman.
On a Friday night about eight years ago, I got myself into an argument with one of my college age children (“the college student”). The argument centered around a certain movie that I thought was morally objectionable. At one point, the college student blurted out: “Dad, most Catholics would not agree with you about this movie. You’re too extreme when comes to things like this. I can only think of two other people who would agree with you: grandmother (my mom) and Aunt Patty.”
