Ever have one of those days, when the Western spur of the turnpike is closed and you have to take the Eastern spur, but they are doing construction and 2 out of 3 lanes on the Eastern spur are closed and every single person in the tri-state area who wants to go south is sitting in front of you and you're going to be late for your hair appointment and at when you finally get to your hair appointment you say on a whim, cut me some bangs! and then a split second later you think oh crap it took years to grow those out why did I do that and then you go to Chipotle and the person behind the counter seems incapable of making three different types of burritos for one order and its all messed up and now a line of restless impatient teens is forming behind you and you are hot and sweaty and embarrassed and your new bangs are in your face and you finally get to the parking deck only to find that you have lost the ticket stub somewhere and now you have to pay the full day price?
No, you've never had that kind of day? Well, good for you. Excuse me while I eat a 1000 calorie burrito.
Since the past week has been full of things that make me want to stab my own eardrum with a pencil, I'll try a fake-it-till-you-make-it exercise. Here is my
top ten top five top three reasons why Craptasticville doesn't suck.
1. Craptasticville has many, many, many beautiful parks for kids. There are 5 within walking distance.
2. The commute to NYC is pretty easy.
3. My in-laws are here. I love my inlaws. I am on a campaign to get my inlaws to move with us in the spring. Which would make this list a bit shorter.
