I'm grumpy lately, and not for reasons I'm completely comfortable explaining to lots of people. But I'm seriously grumpy, so grumpy that Laura asked me today "Is it your time of the month?"
But since I'm not completely comfortable describing my real problem, here's what I've decided to do. I've created, in my head, a fictional problem. And I've created a fictional character, thus far unnamed, to deal with said problem. Here's what he'd say, faced with a problem not at all similar to my problem, in his way which is not all that similar to mine.
"You seem to think you belong in my world.
You seem to think you're strong enough, fast enough and smart enough to compete on my level.
But I know something you don't; you're not man enough.
You're scared, and if you're not, you should be.
Doing what you do has become a hobby. Being a thorn in my side has become your pastime. Some people play tennis, you irritate me.
But while you're dabbling in irritation, I'm making my life's work out of the dismantling of souls like yours.
So come stand toe to toe with me now, if you want. But make sure you're ready. Cause your life is headed for a permanent change. You'll never see a challenge the same way again."
