To Keep From...

Laughter is the best medicine, they say. I think it's the only thing that keeps the final catastrophe at bay. Don't you think it helps to laugh when faced with the absurdly hopeless? All I can ever do in that situation is laugh.

Take the day off to be home when someone requires you to sign for a delivery they're bringing. Then, they cancel. Twice. What can you do but laugh?

Someone writes down the wrong part number, sends you on a wild goose chase, spending money and time to find it. It arrives and doesn't work. Turns out you had the part they needed the whole time. What can you do but laugh?

I guess you could get angry. You could get all emotional and flip out. What good does that do you?

Laughter is proven to release chemicals that put you in a better mood. Instead of crying, I laugh myself into a frenzy. It probably frightens small animals and children, but I laugh. OH, I laugh real good.
