I don’t break stuff nearly as often in real life as I do in my head. Sometimes I think I should.

Sometimes days just don’t go right, and sometimes they go spectacularly wrong. Try smiling when your kid locks you both out and you're forced to spend
4 hours in the garden because the neighbours who own the spare key are not home. Sometimes wrong can be very right, like watching "dancing with the stars" with gran on mothersday and see she is having a great time. Sometimes, they’re just another in a series of days that are just as frustrating as frustrating as the frustrating one before it and even more frustrating one before that.

And on these days, at the worst moments in the worst minutes of these days, you just really, really want to trash something. Throw something out of the window. Kick something over, scream out loud. Run your arm along a shelf, fling breakables at the wall, jump on something pleasantly destrucable.

But you don’t. Because why? Because you’re grown up. And sensible. And breaking things doesn’t help and doesn’t change anything or actually make anything better. So you don’t. You just don’t.

And then you wonder if one day you’re going to rip a traffic light out of the ground and start batting whole buildings and stupid people into the sunset with it. And you decide that you should always wear stretchy clothing, because you’ve seen the Incredibles and you know its a deeply flattering look.

And then you start thinking it might be safer if you maybe just broke stuff every now and again. Because you’ve never looked good in red.

I have learned not to get in those stage of mind anymore where I wanted to turn people faces into smashed tomato's or to redecorate the house.

And in earlier days I would take the dog out, have myself a lay in the grass and just watch the sky.

Haven't you set up a T-batting with net in the garden yet, which you can use for relieve of smash/break moments ?

Tip: put a small glass jar with top in the ground at a good sensible spot and have a spare key set in it. Never to wait for neighbours or need to imitate a foolish burgler.

Ah sure don't we all have days like those. I call them weekdays. The days when you take 45 minutes to crawl 6 kilometres on a motorway. The days when the Dublin City Council answer to traffic congestion is to start a radio station to tell you that traffic is jammed. The days when your local bus company has to cancel an order for 250 buses because "Oops we forgot about wheelchair access". Those days when your telephone infrastructure provider can't provide broadband twenty miles from Dublin and you have just returned from a remote part of the Eastern Desert in Southern Egypt where, guess what, they have broadband.

Unfortunately the things I want to break have bodyguards and civil servents to isolate and protect them.

Irish Democracy - Government of the people, by the people, for the elite.

Ah well!! Life could be worse. At least I wasn't locked out of the house.

Some relief is good now and then!
There are too many things I wish
I could break but I am just a
small blue alien who dreams of
big breaking power!
