Well tell that to us chronic
complainers. We first-worlders
who fret and cavil about needing
a brand new appliance as if it
were foraging atop a towering
pile of waste at the landfill.
We feel quite put out; it’s
a focus of our daily struggles.
Then warm to how our life will
become better the day after the
new thing is installed. Then seek
out the next calamity online where
products can be found to pause
the inevitable decline.
