The most frustrating thing in the world to be angry with is the forces of nature. This is because nature doesn't give a fuck. Nature hates you, and you just have to deal with it, even when "dealing with it" means "picking yourself up off the floor and hurrying to mop up the paint you spilled and praying that nobody saw you get so startled by a sudden clap of thunder that you tipped your stool right over and fell".

That little incident put the score for today firmly at Nature: 2 and Jae: 0, accounting for the fact that he had left his bedroom window open the previous night and been awoken at an ungodly hour by the rain blowing in this morning. And it wasn't quite lunch time yet, so Jae could probably rightfully assume that he was just going to be on the losing end all day long, if this was how things were going so far.

He snatched his phone up off the floor and paused the music he had been listening to before setting it on the nearest table. Fortunately, the painting and drawing room had a paper towel dispenser for exactly these situations when someone spilled things, so all he had to do was grab a handful and get to cleaning. Jae set the stool upright again and crouched down to wipe up the paint, wincing slightly.

He really hoped no one had seen him spaz out and fall on his butt like that.
"Art enriches the community, Steve, no less than a pulsing fire hose, or a fireman beating down a blazing door. So what if we're drawing a nude man? So what if all we ever draw is a nude man, or the same nude man over and over in all sorts of provocative positions? Context, not content! Process, not subject! Don't be so gauche, Steve, it's beneath you."
