bad days

To paraphrase Tom Waits:

I knew a guy once who had a bad day, and he just ignored it. Figured it would go away on its own. But the problem with bad days is they're like weeds. You get one, then up sprout another and another--and before you know it you've got a bad week. Ignore them a little longer, and suddenly you're in a bad month. String a few of those together and, well, you've got yourself a bad year, brother. And nobody wants that. So the only thing to do with a bad day is you gotta choke it, you just choke that sumbitch right down to nothing. Stomp and grind it right back down to where it came from before it gets out of hand.
