The other day, Daniel and I were having a blast out with some friends. We spent the morning together doing a fun run, and then continued hanging out through the afternoon. This is so rare for us! As the night wore on, I could tell I was getting a little grumpy. I wasn't joking very much, and took too many things Daniel said way too seriously.
When this starts to happen, I often check myself. I take pride in the few fights Daniel and I get into. Not that arguing within a relationship is frowned upon, but when we do get into it, we tend to make up pretty quick. So when I start to get a little huffy, first and foremost, I check the calendar. Sorry for the TMI, but it’s realistic! Once I am aware, I can reel it back in. Second? I wonder when my last meal was. Yep, hanger is a thing, my friend. And I was very, very hangry.
So back to the occasion at hand. Daniel and I were having a blast, when he realized his new sunglasses were missing. I was upset because they were a gift from me, and he was upset because he had them just a few minutes ago. I know it wasn’t his fault, but I just couldn’t drop it, even after he looked everywhere and asked around. Both of our moods took a dive, and we decided to head out.
On the way home, dinner came up. Oh ya, we hadn’t eaten since that morning after the run… All of a sudden our spirits were lifted. I mean, I was still seriously bummed about the sunglasses, but I stopped scouring my camera for the last moment in time I saw them. I could think about something else! And once the food was in my tummy I was ready to keep spending time with Daniel. We ended up watching some Daredevil and calling it an early night.

When I was little, my mom always carried mints, gum, or random pieces of candy in her purse. She’d nibble on them if she was ever sleepy, but I use this same trick to keep myself cheery. As soon as hanger peeks it’s ugly head, I can’t focus on anything but the negative. I made the mistake of not carrying a purse on that very long Saturday, and paid for it! Luckily I usually have my small backpack and can fit a couple SNICKERS® in there so Daniel and I never have to let the hanger interrupt our good times again.
What is your secret to keeping the good times rolling??
[Or maybe your favorite purse snack!]
