27/July/2015, Day 208. Monday.
Back in the early 80's, when Old Grump was a Young Grump, he and his buddies at work used to repeat a little saying every now and then:
Life's a bitch, and then you die.
Pleasant, huh? It's morbid humor appealed to the young men, so much so that they sometimes modified it as follows:
Life's a bitch, and then you marry one.
The point of all this is that these two dismally silly sayings sum up how Grump feels at the moment: work is killing him, (figuratively, we hope!), and Sweetie is displeased with him.
The trouble started, (as it often does), when Grump came home from work discouraged and in a foul state of mind. His grumpiness soured the mood, so by the time he and Sweetie went to the gym to work out, she wasn't speaking to him anymore. He then refused to cut short his workout, so that when he was finally done and they drove to Hobby Lobby to get some pictures framed, (as Grump had promised they would do), Hobby Lobby was already closed.
The silver lining to all this is that Kuya and Dodong are oblivious to Grump's misery and misbehavior.
Blah ...... let's get this day over with, and go to bed! Goodnight all.
