Have you ever received everything you asked for and more? Have you ever realized once you got it, you didn’t know what to do with it? Heck, did you ever step back and think “I’m not even ready for this?”
Have you ever gave something everything you got, just to be left with nothing? Have you ever gone after something that you were passionate about, just to be disappointed? Have you ever felt like you were stuck in a place where there was no out? Have you ever just wanted a chance to prove yourself?
Have you ever felt like the good things in life never last long enough? Have you ever felt like just when your head was above water, the tide rushed in? Have you ever felt like you just could not catch a break?
Have you ever been so delusional about a certain situation in your life? Have you ever ignored all the signs and arrogantly flaunted your flaws?

Fans of Grumpy Cat, Oscar the Grouch, and Andy Rooney, stand and cheer (or stand and kvetch, if that’s more your style): October 15 is National Grouch Day. And why not? Why shouldn’t curmudgeons have their day (they have their own society, apparently). After all, there’s International Day of Happiness and Happiness Happens Day. Well, grouchiness happens, too.
National Grouch Day seems to have originated with Sesame Street and Oscar, the crotchety muppet who lived in a trashcan. That would certainly make me grumpy—although Oscar (unibrow) and Andy Rooney (bristle bombs) both had some serious eyebrow issues, so maybe that’s the problem. In any case, let’s take a moment to celebrate those people who aren’t annoyingly chipper and full of false cheer.
