Have a Tootsie Roll…

Last month was very stressful for lots of people I know.  So the month of “Newvember” is a celebration of sorts.  I don’t know how many people just try to make it through the day.  I’m not sure if you are one of those people who love the mornings or hate them.  I don’t know if you rush through your week trying to be 3 places at once and then, when Friday finally arrives, you breathe a small sigh of relief only to realize you have tons of housework or other activities to do.  However, if any of this sounds like you, you might be an adult.  Try not to let that scare you.

I have no idea why a conversation with a co-worker (also a friend) has made a difference in my way of thinking in just two days, but I find it hilarious and keep applying it to lots of situations.  Since it helped me, I am going to share.  We were talking about dealing with unwanted situations and perhaps the subject of ornery people was mentioned.  She said she had a bunch of Tootsie Rolls in her pocket, pulled one out and handed it to someone and told them to have a good day.  We took it one step further, and well, me being me said “It’s too bad we can’t have the letters CTFD on it.”  Calm the foul down…where was your mind?

Anyway, it has made me laugh for two days now.  Which brings me to my point.  Here it is:

You know you will be singing that tomorrow.
