Get a Grip

I spent far too long the other day talking with (actually, just listening to) someone who was so completely full of herself as to leave me dumbfounded. I'm all for having self-confidence, self-promotion, and being proud of your accomplishments; however, if you are middle-aged with braces, living in the middle of a hick town you hate, with a population less than the G train during rush hour, hundreds of miles from friends and family, working a job you didn't want and don't like, and it is all because you ran after a guy who then, in turn, ran off, perhaps you should take your self-glorification down a notch.
