Exercises in Maturity

My reaction to the discovery that our internet was down?

Jumping up and down emitting high-pitched four-letter words that I'd prefer LO did not repeat.  (This is why he's in daycare during my work time).

My reaction to the internet continuing to stay down despite router fiddling, computer restarting, modem cursing, and more jumping up and down?

Zen-like acceptance as I drove to the library to do my writing for the day.

I'm totally kidding.  You probably want to stay out of my way today unless you are a Comcast representative capable of fixing my MIA internet connection.

Seriously, I'm on a rampage of maturity.

Just as a watched pot will take longer to boil -

a cursed internet connection will take longer to be repaired.

Just saying...

Interesting that you should mention that, Gary.  J came home during lunch to take a look at the connection, and apparently I had fixed it with my router fiddling but it took some time for the fix to take effect.  Patience has never been one of my most notable virtues.
