Holy crap, my blog is way too serious.
I am not nearly as serious as I'm painting myself to be in this blog. I've discussed heavy issues, and maybe instead of a "blog" I should call it a "whine" or something like that. Anyway, for your entertainment today I will not be writing the horrible story that I originally was. Instead, I will offer you a smidgen of humor.
You have to condition yourself so that whenever someone says, "That drives me nuts," you say, "Hey, that reminds me of a joke," and then tell this joke. About the 10th time this happens, everyone will be laughing before you even tell the joke. Eventually it will become a competition to see who can start telling the joke first. And it usually annoys the hell out of at least one person you know who will always forget the consequences of saying, "That drives me nuts" around you.
Here it is:
So this Pirate walks into a bar and he has a steering wheel down his pants. The bartender looks at him and asks, "Whoa! Why is there a steering wheel down your pants?" The Pirate responds, "Yarrrgh! It's drivin' me nuts!"
Joke Delivery Note: You have to say the Pirate's line in your best Pirate voice.
I guarantee that people will think you are an idiot, and then after hearing the joke repeatedly they will adore you for bringing such stupidity into their lives.
Peace, love and laughter. Be happy today.
