Grin After Dwelling

I can dwell, and this habit sucks, and starting last night I was dwelling on something stupid said by someone stupid (or at least ignorant) at Powell's, and I didn't say anything and I should have but I couldn't think of what to say to the person that wouldn't make me sound, um, is "persnickety" the right word? let's see, Merriam-Webster says that it means "fussy about small details," "having the characterstics of a snob" and "requiring great precision," so that's close but not quite what I meant, so let's say I worried I'd sound sniffy and whiny so I didn't say anything, and it came back to mind this morning and I need to LET THIS GO and think of happy stuff...

...and I was fortunate enough that Moulin Rouge! was on cable this morning, and I watched one of Ewan MacGregor and Nicole Kidman's early scenes ("Love is a many splendored thing! All you need is love!"), and I started grinning like an idiot. Silly grinning. Needed after dwelling.

(A dream detail also made me smile, at least in my dream, but I won't share that.)

Now if I can completely knock what I was dwelling on out of my head...
