I always say that all is not lost until you’ve lost your sense of humor. Well, since so many self-proclaimed self-righteous “legitimate researchers” have decided to skewer me on the internet because I still like Tom, I have been losing my sense of humor, and this is something that doesn’t happen to me often.
Last night my teenage son wanted his 12-year-old hyper friend to spend the night. I was not in the mood for a sleep over, but being the nice mom, I agreed to it. Then they wanted me to drive them to the store to buy some treats before it closed at 10. Being the nice mom, I agreed to that too though I really wanted to stay and listen to the beginning of Coast to Coast AM.
At the store my son’s 12-year-old hyper friend purchased two 2-liter bottles of Mountain Dew. And that’s when I lost my sense of humor. I told him he was absolutely not going to be allowed to sit up at my home all night drinking Mountain Dew. After all the hell people put me through on the internet for the last 2 days, I needed my sleep and wasn’t going to let someone ruin it for me by drinking extremely caffeinated sugary soda and going wild. I took him back to his house to drop off the soda and then he decided to stay there because I wasn’t being my normally nice self.
My sense of humor still hasn’t returned, so I feel the need to spend the day writing. Like yesterday, I will probably go out into the woods somewhere, sit by myself, enjoy the peace, and spend a good part of the day reading and writing, my two favorite activities.
May all of you out there who have lost your compassion, your loving-kindness, your humanity… and your humor… have it restored to you at this time.
