Freudian slip

The other night, my husband was reading one of the Stoic philosophers (I forget which one), and he read out loud the philosopher’s recommendation for how to approach hardship: “…with smiles, cheerfulness, and contentment.”

I said, “That’s how I’m going to approach my new nonfiction project, with smiles, tears, and resentment!” I swear I didn’t hear the difference in the words until two seconds after they emerged from my mouth.

Anyone else think I could use a vacation? 😀
