What’s yours?

I have been really worried that I am not going to get a book deal out of this staggeringly famous blog. But then yesterday I got my first “hate comment” and now I feel like I’ve really made it.

Oh, I placed it in my spam folder, but here goes:

“I think this post should be retitled to “Enjoying Anger”. You really got a thrill out of flipping off some idiot who stole your parking space? Really? I’m not sure what “sucked” about the store you visited, or why you felt everyone there was “useless”, but how did your childish display of temper help? This might be an interesting link for you to check out. [I can’t repeat the link- I think it’s pornographic.]

Have a super weekend everyone. Our friend Greg is coming to visit. Yay! And the teachers [or insert any discrete labor force here] in England are on strike right now, causing millions of parents to scramble for child care or miss work. Europe, you had me at strike.
