Something's Not Right (and something is)
I've been noticing a sudden upswing in depression in the blogosphere and in real life. Others tell their stories. I post the tackiest Jesus things I can find.
Laughter helps me enormously and, fortunately, I have one of the funniest friends in the world. I tell her about my virtual world (which she thinks is a bit mental, but she lets it go ...) and the depression I'm noticing and she says, "Yeah, something's not right in the universe. Mother Earth is speaking to us. War, famine, meanness, Republicans ..." And after a few minutes we're both splitting our sides with laughter over nothing in particular. Just two single 40-something moms with nothing else to do but talk to each other at 11:00 p.m. (Well, we could be cleaning house, but as I've confessed elsewhere, I don't get the cleaning manias. Dammit!)
So tonight, a shout out to my friend. Too bad she lives 465.78 miles away.
