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.
