“Look me in the eye and tell me, I’m satisfied. Look me in the eye, unsatisfied.” – Paul Westerberg of The Replacements “Unsatisfied,” from the album Let It Be, 1984
Why this particular lyric? Hey, I get grumpy sometimes. I’ll get over it. Anyway…
Sometimes life hands you a bag of crap and you have to figure out how to turn it into fertilizer. (Think positive.) Sometimes no matter how hard you try, you’re stuck with the bag of crap and you have to figure out where to put it so it doesn’t stink up the place. (Learn coping mechanisms.) Remind yourself that eventually, even the biggest turds dry up and blow away. (Time heals all wounds.) In the meantime, break out the scented candles. (Denial, denial, denial!) Finally, quit whining. (No one likes a whiner.) Some people have truckloads of crap to deal with. So you’re unsatisfied. It could be a whole lot worse.
