Absolutely. This is a normal human psychological pattern.

Sometimes I wake up Grumpy. Sometimes I let him sleep.

I get so grumpy at restaurants when we get a complete meal and it gets cold while our requests for silverware go unanswered! But in the big picture, what does it matter?

As T.S. Eliot so nicely phrased it, “I grow old … I grow old … I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled.”
