There are...shall we say, certain people in my life who are overly dramatic. Melodramatic. It is incredibly annoying. I do what I can to avoid the drama, but sometimes you just can't around it. So I wrote my own version of the Serenity Prayer:
God grant me
to deal with the drama I can't avoid,
to avoid what drama I can,
and the wisdom
to make my excuses plausible.
I'm thinking about needle-pointing it on a pillow.
