"Bitter and stimulating, like coffee."
I'm so glad there is a silver lining!!! Ugh, what a crummy day! I totally understand what it feels like to be scolded like that. Even when you know it is not your fault, it makes you feel like a criminal. I always feel that way when I walk by police officers and security guards, especially in the airport or at the border. Even when they haven't ACTUALLY scolded me, I feel like a criminal because they are just WATCHING me to see if I am being suspicious. Hahaha! Insane! Well, I guess my rant proves that I am at LEAST as crazy as you, so you don't have to feel alone!;) Enjoy your 129 pounds. You earned every pence!
