Cheers to Irritants

Life is a test of our patience. There are just too many ways to irritate us. Say we are travelling in a very crowded bus after a hard day’s labour. Somehow we just find our self adjacent to somebody with a very unpleasant body odour.  When we get home we are met with the poorest…
