The hardest choice I ever made (today) was…whether I would give in to self-pity or not.
I’d love to say I took the high road and drove right past that crap, but no.
If self pity was a game I would totally win it today.

Sometimes I start doing that comparison game. We all do it. If you don’t, I hate you - not that I’m comparing or anything. Anyway, I start doing that comparison game:
- Their kids are better behaved.
- They have more Twitter followers than me.
- I can’t engage anyone on Facebook and everyone else can.
- They get more comments on their posts than me.
- That person's stupid tweet got more retweets than my tweet. I hate them!
- My friends got published in a book and I didn’t.

Two of my Finish the Sentence Friday co-hosts (Kristi of Finding Ninee and Janine of Janine's Confessions of a Mommyaholic) and a bunch of other awesome hot mamas are published in this book.
This jealousy is different from that high school jealousy though in that I won't be TP-ing Kristi's and Janine's houses...only because I don't know where they live...and I'd have to fly and all that stuff...although I did buy 48 rolls of toilet paper last night, so I have that part ready.
Anyway, go buy their book on Amazon HERE. I can't wait to check it out!
Hey, and while I wrote this, someone gave me a Favstar trophy on Twitter and another humor blogger invited me to guest post. So I should probably go shut up my whining now and make dinner.
Sentence for next week: Once, in public, I saw somebody...
