Just kidding. No woe. No despair. I was pretending. Sometimes, when the kidlets are being obnoxious, I strike this pose (usually standing up, but it was sunny and I wanted to rest) and someone says for me, “Is it hard to be you?”
To which I reply, “Yes. It is hard to be me. Woe and despair.”
This is often an effective way to get them to calm down a notch. It must be my incredible acting ability.
