Baby, I spent several hours tonight trying to troubleshoot PHP.
I’m pretty pissed off about it. I didn’t learn anything about PHP, I didn’t learn anything, really.
It was a freaking waste of my time. And I’m angry because I have no time to waste.
There’s a quote by W.H. Auden.
“Perhaps there is only one cardinal sin: impatience. Because of impatience we were driven out of Paradise, because of impatience we cannot return.”
Impatience is my very worst trait.
I’m haunted by the people I’ve tailgated, the rolled eyes in line, the zooming around the elderly and very young on the sidewalk.
With children, with my children, I fight that impulse every day.
Help me to overcome that tendency.
