Virtue 13 - The One and Only Day

Here we go.  Today is the day that we wrap up our Franklin virtues.  We end with a doozy:

Virtue 13:  Humility - Imitate Jesus and Socrates.

Dearest reader, I'm sorry to say that I completely blew it today.  First, at work.  I won't bore you with a long, dragged-out history of my job (and yes, it would be boring, long and dragged-out); I will just say that today there was a storm cloud of entitlement which settled in over my desk first thing this morning, and stayed there all day.  I freely admit that I was a bear.

And then, tonight - well, I came home from work and did my taxes, which really torqued me off.  I think I did them as correctly as I can, considering I'm in a divorce....but, well, I'm not sure.  I guess if I get audited, I get audited, and life will indeed go on.

I'll worry about that tomorrow, Scarlett.

Anyhow, here was my day:  Entitlement + Income Taxes = Humility.  I'm sorry, that equation simply doesn't balance.

But fear not - tomorrow is a new month - and promises to be full of madcap adventures as I tweak this program for a 30-day self-improvement quest. 

You do know, of course, that YOU are cordially invited to JOIN ME in each and every zany adventure on which I embark, right?  WHO'S WITH ME!
