It lasted forever and ended so soon...

It’s morning and it’s already one of “those” days.  He’s on the couch, I’m standing over him and I’m wondering if the neighbors can hear my crazy leaking out of our pristine little house.
“I will not talk to you when you’re yelling.” 
I tell him this... as I’m yelling.
