Contrasting Views

This morning I was sitting at my computer on the dining room table looking out at a gorgeous blue sky and green trees blowing in the breeze.

My brother was sitting at his computer in an army barracks in Iraq, where it is afternoon, looking out at a vicious sandstorm that has obscured the landscape in a thick orange cloud.

We were chatting over Yahoo Messenger. I was avoiding housework and he was avoiding going outside.

Really, it's a toss up as to which is worse.
