That phrase popped into my head as I was half asleep and it made me giggle. I imagine some food critic telling someone about it and in reply hearing, “what? You’re comparing this meal with the U.S.’s worst nuclear accident? Are you sure that is a good idea?”
On a different note, why is it that I can listen to a particular friend’s problems for hours on end but when I feel the need to say, “OK, I am not having the best time right now but I can handle it,” they say “oh, well. That’s not that bad” and act shocked and slightly disappointed that I am even mentioning my stress or frustration? I said that I could handle it. I was not making a big deal. I was just expressing a level of dissatisfaction over some current events in my life.
