Her tongue-in-cheek humor -- the cherry-on-top of one of the most crap-tastic days I'd had in a while. Still, she knew exactly what to say to me, in order to make me laugh, and fully seize the Crappy Diem.
That's right, when you're having a crappy day - you've gotta embrace it. Even if it means rolling up your sleeves and getting dirty. Facing the crap head on, is pretty much the only way you'll ever make it through a true S*** storm. Please note: this is far worse than being caught in a 'Shark-Nado.'
So, you may be wondering exactly how one measures the true level of crap?
Alas, I shall introduce you to the "crap-o-meter." It's totally unscientific, but completely sound.
Here's how it works:
(1) Did someone tell a little white lie? --> You're having a CRAPPY DIEM
(2) Did someone you trust, believe you actually bought that lie? --> It's a CRAPPIER DIEM
(3) Did someone think they were fooling you with their lies, and adhere to their own stories as the truth, and not have any clue that you knew the full truth? --> Congratulations, you're having a CRAPTASTIC DIEM (oh, and your friend is a total LIAR).
The best thing, is when someone makes up a story, and presents it as the truth. Don't you agree? (Read that with as much sarcasm as you can muster). Let's just say, when you vividly see a person's true colors, after observing a complete mismatch between their words and actions, it's pretty crappy. People can be really crappy to one another. Oh, and hurtful, too.
But in the end, the truth is... it's a no-win situation. You have someone who had a crappy day, because someone did or said a crappy thing. Basically, it all comes down to poo.
So, here's some advice:
You can avoid the CRAPPY DIEM, just by telling the truth. It's so simple.
Then, all you'll have to do is CARPE DIEM - Seize the Day. After that, who knows, it might even turn out to be a CARNAL DIEM... oh, you get the picture.
