The world is a cruel place, but the cruelty can be lessened by applying humor. Or if the cruelty isn’t lessened, humor takes the barb off the red hot painful pokey end.
As grandpa used to say “might as well smile – it doesn’t cost extra.” I’m sure hundreds of other people said it too, but he was the first one who said it to me. He also called me Pee Wee, but thankfully he was the only one who did that.
Bedtime. Good night, cruel world!
