Yearning for my usual cinnamon raisin toast, I went to find the butter. It was nowhere to be found. Someone had used the last of it and neglected to inform me. The sound of my grinding teeth echoed through the kitchen.
Had I known about this dire butter situation, I would have done something about it. But for this particular round of toast—something I look forward to every day—there was no hope. I had to have some fruit instead to satisfy my body’s cry for carbs.
Apparently I have FWP—First World Problems.
You may suffer from it, too. It strikes when you least expect it. Find out more in the video below.
If you suffer from FWP, please share your story here.
All kidding aside, here are some things you can do once you’ve recovered (or even while you’re suffering) from FWP:
- >> Give to charity:water to bring clean, safe water to Rwanda (100 percent of public donations goes to fund water projects in the field).
- >> Save elephants from poaching.
- >> Take action against the corrupting influence of money in politics.
Doing one or more of the above may actually cure FWP, if only temporarily. But if you continue to be of benefit, even once a day, FWP is likely to go into remission.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go buy some butter.
