Why do you still have rough days?

Q: During a talk of yours in Santa Barbara last year, you mentioned that the day of that talk you had had a really rough day. This has always confused me about freedom, enlightenment, etc. What does that mean for you to have a rough day? To me it means not accepting what is. My thought is that you shouldn't have rough days anymore. Please enlighten me.

A: I am not enlightened - I do not even believe in such a concept - so I am free to have any sort of day I please - even days of not accepting what is.
