It was an ordinary day. I was sitting on the couch transcribing for Doomsday Preppers, watching rednecks in the woods preparing to pee on a tarp.
All of a sudden, I saw Samara grab my cup filled with tea and proceed to dump it onto the floor and laugh. I felt rage and frustration enter my body starting from my stomach and rising up into my throat.
“Damn it!” I yelled to myself. This was the 14th day in a row that she had managed to spill my morning beverage, and I placed it in an area where I thought she couldn’t grab it!
I was beside myself. And this wasn’t just any tea, it was infused with chinese herbs that my acupuncturist formulated to help with anxiety.
I grabbed the empty cup and threw it. I didn’t think, I just tossed the cup in frustration. I was angry that my tea had spilled, I was burnt out due to Wil working and being in school and not being around as much. I felt exhausted, spent, and angry. And I looked at that cup and I channeled all that anger, all of that frustration into it. And I hurled it as hard as I could.
Unfortunately, the TV happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and this is what happened:
I’m not that strong, so I’m not sure how this happened. This is the cup I threw:
Right now, I’m feeling really badly about the TV situation; especially because the TV was a gift from Wil’s family.
I wish I’d thrown the cup at the wall or not thrown it at all.
The funny thing is I’m not a person that has anger issues. This was totally an anomaly.
Now I have to figure out how to fix the thing.
Sorry TV! I didn’t mean to take my emotional baggage out on you.
The one plus side to having a broken TV is that we have to find ways to have fun without it, like Ari actually plays with his toys as opposed to zoning out on the couch.
Okay, time to look online for ways to fix Plasma TVs.
Have you ever broken anything in anger?
