But I figured I'd do it anyway.
The title, of course, comes from Frank Costanza as part of his Festivus "airing of grievances" and is one of my favorite tv quotes ever. Mainly because of the way it's delivered - with lots of anger.
Welcome, newcomers. The tradition of Festivus begins
with the airing of grievances. I got a lot of problems with
you people! And now you're gonna hear about it! - Frank Costanza
Soon after he delivers this speech, he loses his train of thought:
FRANK: (To George) Quiet, you'll get yours in a minute.
Kruger, you couldn't smooth a silk sheet
if you had a hot date with a babe... I lost my train of thought.
To me, this is the best part. And very relateable to me as I am often all worked up about something, then a moment later, over it and ready to move on with my life.
And to clarify, the "people" I have a problem with might not always be people. They might be things. Like, for example, right now I'm really fed up with Breathe Right Nose Strips. My allergies have been awful lately, so I picked up a box of these the other day. They work great at first, opening my nose right up and making it easier to breathe.
But I guess at some point in the night, I get annoyed with having it on and tear it off. I never have any idea where it is in the morning. Last summer, while camping in Colorado Springs with some friends, I lost one in a borrowed sleeping bag. I never did find it (I'm still sorry about that, Emily).
This morning, I went through the painful process of ripping one off my thigh. Yesterday I pried one from my quilt. A few days ago, while working on a family project, my sister said to me, "what's that on your arm?" And that's why,
I got a lot of problems with you, Breathe Right Nose Strips!
And thus begins my new blog feature.
