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.
