Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day


When the British series “Queer as Folk” premiered, it took brilliant prose to a whole new level. One of the characters described quite succinctly, how I felt today by 10 am.

“Sometimes, you get a good Thursday, sometimes a bog-standard Thursday, sometimes you get a shit Thursday. This Thursday was mental.” – “Queer as Folk”

Mental. That’s it.

Today has been a hilarious mix of corporate and personal insanity. It has made happy hour too far away and the weekend seem like an eternity from reality.

Whenever ridiculous days like this come about, I skim “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.” And much like the title character in the book, I always ponder moving to Australia.
