Aristotle was AMAZING, don't you think? To realise that was written...let me check...something like two and a half thousand years ago...
Yep, today I'm angry.

I won't go into the humdrum every day anger about people in my life who are selfish and self-centred. I encounter that too much. Suffice to say, I'm glad I live in my world not theirs.
No, it's people who are SO LAZY and THOUGHTLESS in their use of figurative language. It makes me angry. I will complain. I HAVE complained.
This is what gets me all riled:
On BBC South East Today, a week or so ago, there was a report about potholes in Kent.
Kent - a privileged county in the South East, the garden of England, average house price £
What was the headline?
"Potholes could leave routes in the South East in a third world state."
Oh dearie me. My heart bleeds for the good people of Kent. Life is so unfair, isn't it? Our fancy wheel-rims might get an itsty-bit dented because there are a few potholes in the roads. I really think we should get Bob Geldof to organise a global concert...
PLEASE, stop comparing our paltry first world problems to the daily struggle for survival that millions of people endure in third world countries.
