Things that sound cranky but aren't.

I recommend you read this very short conversation over and over again, in different tones of voice.

We did it sort of serious for the first line, and then really laughing for the next two.

Me: Some days it's like - there's all these hours to get to before this day is finally over, and all that gets me is another whole set of hours to get through.

Him: Good, because the Beatitudes encourage us to borrow trouble from tomorrow, as today doesn't have enough of its own.*

Me:  Thank you for acknowledging my pain.

*(hint: no they don't)

I think a Boston accent works well on the first line and a Carey Grant on the second.
