Have you guys seen this meme? It's called "first-world problems." It cracks me up every time because I can really relate to it. And it makes me feel guilty as hell. But I think many of you might also relate, no?
My friend Candace and I were laughing about this last weekend; we were complaining about something really mundane and ridiculous (I don't even remember how it started) and I muttered, "oh, our first-world problems." She couldn't stop laughing and we continued to come up with a variety of other "first-world problems" that we cite on an almost-daily basis despite knowing how damned lucky we are to live in the United States.
This is one of my favorite ways to give myself a reality check and put some of my "problems" into perspective and get a giggle at the same time. Funny-because-it's-true laughter.
What are your "first-world" problems? Don't be shy. We're all (first-world) friends here.
