Bless Your Heart

Bless Your Heart

When I was a kid, if someone talked in a whiney way about their mizzeries and problems, the most frequent response was “Bless your heart.” The literal translation, as everyone knew, was “I know things are rough. Wouldn’t it be great to take it to the Complaint Department where it could be fixed? Because, after all, the rest of us are tired of hearing about it.” I never saw a Complaint Dept even though I heard it referenced many times. I was starting to think the Complaint Dept didn’t actually exist.

Imagine how excited I was today when we were enjoying breakfast at a new cafe and I found the actual Complaint Department. Bless our hearts.

    I have a complaint. I had to jump through all kinds of hoops to comment here. It kept wanting me to use my account – which I didn’t know I had. Shows what I know. Bless my heart.
    You’ve inspired me to finish my novel. At 100K words… should be done in another 20K. Easy, right? Your little brother…

    Oh and I might even post something to my blog which, inexplicably has 68 views although I’ve never told anyone about it. Must be my twitter followers.
