January 23, 2013

        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.
