Could be worse

I could complain, but my problems are small, and borne of a situation of my own choosing, not forced upon me:

— beautiful but old blue-and-white dishware in this rental house cracked and cracking (‘crackando’ in Spanish) and we’re losing some.  I’m using the plastic cup now.


— wearing the same two blouses and two skirts for a week. Do the simple math, 2 squared = 4 combos.

— just found out today that Spanish has 14 verbs tenses, waaaaaay more than anybody needs. But glad to see only two grammatical genders (German has three) and just two grammatical numbers (Arabic has three).  Just a little grumpy about the 16 noun cases in Finnish, but that has nothing to do with me now.
