There's been a lot of stuff going on this week (in Las Vegas) that has, in all honesty, affected me much more than it should. I cannot stand idiots—those people who have no concern for others, who think they are the center of the universe, and who are just plain irritating to everyone around them (and probably know it and don't care). I know better, yet I am too sensitive to things that should really not affect me (I hope that makes sense.).
As I mentioned, we went to the fest in Piacenza yesterday. I was walking around stewing over this incident and mentally saying some not-so-nice things to people who will never hear them. At some point, Mike asked me if I was all right. Eye roll.
"You know I'm not all right," I snipped. "This crap is bothering me. And don't tell me it shouldn't. I know it shouldn't."
"You just have to let it go, Babe," he said to me. HUGE eye roll.
"Humph." Not long after that, we walked by a booth selling t-shirts, and I saw one that read, "DON'T LET IDIOTS RUIN YOUR DAY."
For days my husband has been telling me that exact thing (as have a number of different friends), but for some reason, that t-shirt slapped a little bit of sense into me. I started thinking about how I really do think too much and let that stuff bother me when, in the light of day, little people have little problems that cause them to create big commotions that, in the grand scheme of life, mean absolutely nothing to anyone but them. I really hope that made sense, but if it didn't to you it did to me. The weight of the week fell away, and I enjoyed the rest of the day.
Well, I enjoyed most of it.

The best part is that when everyone in Modena was waiting to board our coach, I snapped a photo out of the window, and Dumb and Dumber just happened to be in it. The one who sat next to me is the one in front of the lady in turquoise, and his buddy is the one in the purple shirt standing to her left.
