It's going to be one of those days
So today started learning about PETA's dumbass contest. Now, the former chairman of the board I work with just stopped in my office. I haven't seen him in a while. So what does he say "Any kids yet?" The tears came right up. I told him "I can't." I wasn't going into details. I am proud of myself for being blunt. He of course suggested adoption. I again was blunt "We can't afford adoption." He then told me that his second child is adopted and noted that it was expensive and an ordeal. I think I'm doing well, that the pain is blunted, not so close to the surface, but then - today happens and right now - I'm fighting to keep my office door open, to not break down in tears at my desk. Please let something good happen today.
