The Misery Reminder

This is a gift that I received a few years ago from my husband. It still hangs on our wall because, from afar, it appears to be a nice gift. A weather center. I was very happy to have received it as I do enjoy following the weather. However, once I put the batteries in things changed.

When the humidity is at a low level, this frowning face appears on the screen. Why? Is it reminding me to be miserable because it is so dry in my house? That every breath that I take of the arid air will crack the membranes inside of my nose and dry out my throat? That I cannot possibly be happy in this environment? Yesterday I thought I was happy but then I glanced at the weather center and I remembered that I wasn't.
