The Great American Grump Out

The official Great American Grump Out is today, May 2, and participants must vow not to be grumpy for the next 24 hours. Can you handle it?

Here are the rules:

The Grump Out asks all you sour pusses to suck it up and refrain from getting your grump on -- at least for 24 hours.

That includes no grumping, no frowning, no grousing, complaining, punching, slapping, hitting or killing. FOR ONE WHOLE DAY.

I suppose some of you are thinking there is no way in Zimbabwe that you could pull this off. Yes, everyday hassles can throw off your mojo at any given moment. Just yesterday, ants and a spider were crawling on my desk, a gnat landed in my coffee and I had to put my car in the shop because oil was leaking out of it like Niagara Falls. Yet, somehow, I am trying to sustain some level of happy-happy-joy-joy to succeed in pulling this off today - and stay sane. Who's with me?
