Audrey Hepburn calls it "the mean reds."

It's when you feel like the skin wrapped around your body might explode from pressure or frustration.  It's an inexplicable phenomenon that could be attributed to PMS - although I've known many-a-fellow to experience it too.

You're angry or restless for no good reason.

The other night, I had the "mean reds."  I couldn't tell you why.  I was just in a mood.

Then my mother (bless her heart) came trouncing into the dining room where I was working on a few job applications.  She said, "Brett!  You need to go check out the sunset."

I probably just grunted an "I'm-too-busy-to-look-up-from-what-I'm-doing-to-talk-to-or-acknowledge-you-plus-I-have-my-earphones-in-and-I-can't-hear-you" manner. Pffffffft.  Sunsets.  I don't have time to look at the stupid sunset.

Five minutes later I sprinted up to my room, grabbed my camera and started snapping away in the rain.  

Why?

Because the sky looked like it had the "mean reds" too.

I stood out in the pouring rain for a solid thirty minutes taking pictures.  And pretending like I wasn't deliberately walking in puddles.

You should never be too busy to look at the sunset.
