June 17, 2009

SKIPNOTE: I'm going to be on vacation starting next week, so regular "Website Wednesday" mailings will resume on July 15. I've tried to make this one a bit longer to make up for the missed weeks.

When I'm feeling down, I try to think happy thoughts.
When that doesn't work, I get even more depressed,
so I try to think even *happier* thoughts.
Inevitably that fails, so I suddenly rip out as many
nose hairs as I can grab between the nails of my
middle finger and thumb, and that *always* results
in me rolling on the floor in rapturous laughter
-- right alongside my writhing, screaming co-worker.
