no good.

There is this great little children's story called Alexander, and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by Judith Viorst. It's about this kid, Alexander, who is having a bad day. The worst day in fact. It's so bad that the only cure is getting on a jet plane and going to Australia. No one has a bad day in Australia, do they?

"I went to sleep with gum in my mouth and now there's gum in my hair and when I got out of bed this morning I tripped on the skateboard and by mistake I dropped my sweater in the sink while the water was running and I could tell it was going to be a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day."

I love that book.

The only thing I want to know is; If I'm having a terrile, horrible, no good, very bad day and I'm already in Australia. What's my cure?
