FWIW - I think it's worth having that conversation with your boss regardless. Even if you are seen as too young or too junior, it's likely to improve your long-term prospects (assuming you handle the conversation well). It's a chance to show that, substantively, you are ready for the additional responsibility (or whatever that job entails). Even if it goes to someone else, it will be a good thing if the decision-makers know in the backs of their heads, "PB was really qualified for that position he applied for before, but we didn't give it to him because we wanted him to get more seasoning." It will make you seem that much more ready the next time, and it will seem that much more like it's "your turn".
Then again, who wants to promote a f**-up who can't even handle a simple umbrella purchase?

My grams is dying. She started mottling this evening, so I assume it's coming very soon. The whole story is just sad. An accident 11 years ago caused some mild brain damage leading to short term memory loss. Has been getting worse and worse. Apparently earlier today she lost autonomic control and started having huge fever spikes. She used to be really smart, witty, fun. She taught me how to play bridge when I was a pubescent 13 year old psycho.
But now it's at the point where it's one of those "don't know whether to feel sad or relieved" kind of things. There's no doubt that if she'd had her wits about her these last few years she'd say she'd rather just go. Just hope she goes peacefully.

Feel for you brother. Both my grandmothers went that way and it was for the best. Just celebrate her life

Sorry to hear this, K. I hope your grandmother is comfortable, and that your entire family finds peace.

Damn, Kyle. That's rough. Makes my problem of not getting in a workout tonight pale in comparison. Hang in there, man.

sorry to hear that Kyle... it looks like she's been suffering from mini-strokes (TIAs)... hope she's at her most comfortable, and thoughts are with you and your family, brah.

on a lighter note, I was offered free front row aerosmith concert tickets for last night...
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
... and I'm not a big fan but its free, and I looked at their recent setlist a good portion are the old songs (when they were still a rock band). anyway my friend had an extra ticket and asked me or our other friend to go. but I felt I had to give it up for the other guy
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
he messaged me asking me if I'm going because he wants to go but he's supposed to meet this lady that is NOT her gf and he wants to cancel, and he was kinda passive aggressive about it, and the lady got pissed he was "trying" to cancel it and he couldn't make a decision of whether to get the ticket or not. I told him to stop fucking around, even if he likes that girl its not gonna happen, but he still couldn't make up his mind so I thought fuck it, gave him the ticket coz I don't wanna see my friend turn into a pussy and try to meet up with his friend that night, so I just gave up on the ticket.
