This week I tried to be nicer. It’s hard in the face of everything that is going on isn’t it, to summon the energy not to just call people bad names, shout and swear. Swearing comes particularly easy to me (at the very best of times) but right now I find myself shouting the worst obscenities at my phone and laptop constantly. Even while apparently trying harder I couldn’t entirely help myself, I still replied to Trump tweets, still drafted multiple versions of replies to Nigel Farage ranging from one word exclamations to longer more considered rebukes. Did you see him in that fucking suit though, going into that hotel to be a racist ?! “Nice work if you can get it.” AGGAHAHAGAHAHHH!
Sorry, come on be nice. Be nice.
