minutia press.

I've decided to become more reflective now that I've begun my sabbatical (metric) year. For some reason, I seem to be more combative in recent days than I can recall being in a long time. I am taking positions contrary to my colleagues, pissing off my brother with simple conversation (like, how is your job going?), and generally tilting at each windmill that passes me by.

I recall the result of excessive combativism is usually a deficit in the being-taken-seriously department. So I guess I should be picking my windmills more carefully. Or get a much bigger sword. Or recruit a posse to help out. And give them all big swords (but not bigger than mine).
