Who Put the Mojo Killer In My Coffee?

Apparently someone put Mojo killer in my latte today.

The day started out so promising…A motivated morning, got a ton done, crazy lady dressed as a kitten in a maid uniform at Starbucks, lunch with my coworkers (for those of you who work at home you know how much to appreciate this) and I was on the crazy train to productivity.

But Dr. Seuss had it so right.

I’m sorry to say so but, sadly, it’s true
and Hang-ups can happen to you.

You can get all hung up in a prickle-ly perch.
And your gang will fly on.  You’ll be left in a Lurch.

You’ll come down from the Lurch with an unpleasant bump.
And the chances are, then, that you’ll be in a Slump.

And when you’re in a Slump, you’re not in for much fun.
Un-slumping yourself  is not easily done.

A few years ago I went through some pretty rough, tough, stuff that would take more than a bottle of wine to discuss, but the point of this:

Grief strikes at funny times.

And today was one of them.

And my babes were gone.  I needed Vanilla to come around and run me through his “crummy day” routine:  Daniel Powder’s “Bad Day” blasting while somebody gives you tea and sits with you.

After one of his “bad days” at school he put the “sad song” on the iPod and sat on the kitchen counter with a cup of tea while I cooked and we chatted about that terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.

Naturally, a workout seemed like the thing to do.

So I did.  I even put on my new workout tank because if there’s anything better than a good workout it’s a good workout in new workout clothes.

And guess what?  My workout sucked.

I bricked, I sweat, I spun, I run.

(Whatever, who needs grammar when you can rhyme.)

And I didn’t feel much better.  But I did smell stinkier.

If a good brick workout can’t pull me out of my funk, then I guess this calls for dessert.

How do you pull out from your funk when a good workout won’t do?
