Spent a good chunk of yesterday evening browsing through the 100 Words site. It was a most cautionary exercise. Among the entries that made me laugh, think, feel and bow my head with humility, there was so much bitching and complaining and self-conscious self-loathing. Look at me! See how pathetic I am, and how cleverly I write about it! Makes me want to perform a cliché and drag those sorry souls through the palliative care unit, just as my great-grandmother took my mother by streetcar on a tour of the poorest part of town after she whined about being bored.
