Good For What Ails Me

God, grant me the valium
To put a happy face on the things I cannot change,
The liquid courage (I prefer Guinness) to force the children to do what I want,
And the wisdom to know when to put myself in a time out.

Don't take those simultaneously, it'll f up your liver.
HM: So noted. I promise to wait at least 10 minutes between the two.

Why 10 minutes? You mean you can't use the beer to wash down the Valium? News to me.
Viv, I know, HM is such a buzz kill. :)
