In my youth, I remember reading a wonderful children's book called something like That's Good! That's Bad. The book told the story of a protaganist going through a series of events that alternated between good and bad. My day was sort of like that.
I got woken up by random noise early in the morning. That's Bad.
I had time to shower and still get to work 45 minutes early. That's Good!
I got to work and the office was too hectic. That's Bad.
I got to leave the office for lunch and look at a spoiler for the new Magic set. That's Good!
I got back a little late and there was a lot to do. That's Bad.
We hired some new temps to help us deal with all the work. That's Good!
We had to spend our afternoon training them because they were new. That's Bad.
They started to answer the phones so we didn't have to as much. That's Good!
One of them was completely baffled by computers and worked very slowly. That's Bad.
However, she brought a bunch of beautiful organic vegetables from her garden to share with the office. That's Good!
I wasn't paying attention, and missed the eggplant and many scurvy-preventing veggies. That's Bad.
I did manage to end up with almost all of the fresh jalapenos, because nobody else wanted them. That's Good!
I decided to try one right then, and the seeds were very, very hot, and I had to answer the phone before I could get up and get water. That's Bad.
I ate the rest of the pepper like a corn on the cob, which although messier on my hands, meant that I didn't eat too many more of the seeds. That's Good!
In spite of the jalapeno, I became tired later in the day and wanted to fall asleep at my desk. That's Bad.
I woke myself up as I usually do, by shaking my head and wearily rubbing my eyes. That's Good!
In this case, as my fingers still had jalapeno juice on them, I experienced a burning painful acidic fire in my right eye that was many varieties of unpleasant. That's Bad.
It did leave me with something interesting to write about in my journal, though. That's Good!
