I'm Sick of Brutus' 'Woe Is Me' Attitude

Panel 1: Brutus and Uncle Ted are sitting at a table, each with a cup of coffee. Uncle Ted: "You look a little down, Brutus." Panel 2. Brutus: "It seems like everything that could go wrong lately, has!" Panel 3. Brutus: "Why does it always happen to me?" Panel 4. Uncle Ted: "You're not alone, Brutus. I've had my share of misfortune as well." Panel 5. Uncle Ted: "As they say, into each life, a little rain must fall." Panel 6. Brutus: "How do you handle those little rainfalls in your life, Uncle Ted?" Panel 7. Uncle Ted: "Metaphorically speaking, I try to dodge my way between the raindrops!"
Brutus has been sick all week so I don't know what could've possibly went wrong. Anyway, I've been reading this comic strip a very long time and I don't think I notice Brutus going through anything more than your average person. We all have those days, those weeks, those months, or even those years sometimes.
