So, You Had a Bad Day

I don’t believe in bad days.  True, there are some days when bad stuff happens – like a domino effect – that seem to overtake the day.  I attribute those bad days to low coping skills.  Nothing more, nothing less.

So, I had a bad, domino-effect, day.  The only thing I wanted to do all evening is hibernate in my little corner and pray my ship would come in.  Sooner rather than later.

What did I need for a fix-up, band-aid, balm?  A good laugh.

First, I watched Big Bang Theory.  I chuckled when the novice fisherman Howard – all decked out in his new fishing gear – finds out he looks silly.  “I wish I would have known that before I posted all those pictures of Facebook,” he replied.  This elicited a giggle.

Then my niece, Bubba, posted pictures on Facebook (the Facebook postings are just a coincidence – or are they?).  She finally posted pictures from our vacation to Yellowstone this summer.  There’s me on a horse – his name is WINSTON.

And there was the random foot hanging off the motorcycle.  I remembered our initial reaction to it.  Obviously, we thought it picture worthy because we have a picture of it.  To borrow the teen way of expressing humor – haha!

But then she posted her picture of her attending an Ugly Sweater Dance.  She was very excited about this dance.  When we went to our annual Day-After-Thanksgiving movie (pretty original name, eh?) she proudly sported a red sweatshirt with two huge Christmas bears (I can’t quite remember but I think the bears may have been necking).  It was a thrift store buy and she loves it!  She wears it even without an Ugly Sweater theme.  Her new thing is Christmas sweaters.

That made me LOL.

(sigh) Okay, I can wait for my ship to come in.  At least until Monday.
