So a friend of mine got irritated with me today. She angrily asked if I think everything is funny, if I take anything in my life seriously. She asked if there is anything I do NOT joke about.
The answer? No. I take plenty seriously… but the fact if the matter is, life is too short. Simple as that.
I use my odd sense of humor kind of like a coping mechanism. If something is stressing me out, like say my health or that stupid red light ticket, I find a way to make light of it.
I mean come on now. There has got to be an award for knowing every single rest stop on interstate 94… through two different states! :)
As I’ve said before. I have a panic/anxiety disorder. The fact that I can joke my way through a hospital visit, car problems and a 3 year old who is hell bent on world domination via annoyance, is a major plus.
More importantly, what’s the point in being upset about something that at this current moment in time I cannot change?
Lighten up folks. Life is not that bad…. and a joke here and there won’t kill you….
Unless you’re standing in a corner, Hood up, brooding.
