We Wince At Every Hit
That's a great phrase for dealing with a painful situation but a depressing phrase when enjoying a good situation, like the all-too-short weekend. Another phrase to keep in mind during stressful times: be careful what you wish for.
An old shop chief of mine was a genius at this. You'd say: thank God it's Friday, and he would say: yeah, and Monday's only two days away.Or, did you go out for Mexican food last night?
I'm betting that if you put that aphorism to a random hundred people, the large majority would just assume you were talking about their mood.
It is both the saddest and the most consoling phrase in human affairs.
