Pondering, I am with you when you say that your feelings (my anger) have turned to pity. It’s the only time I’ve ever wanted to use the phrase “pity the fool.”

Oops. I jumped the gun. There’s still some anger mixed in with the pity, or that other phrase (“you dumb sumb**ch”] wouldn’t be coming to mind so often.

“It’s the shipwreck that leads you to the magical island.”
(Trevor Noah)
