The Essence of Comedy

Re: folding sweaters for six hours with my ancient, arthritic body on a busy afternoon in a discount department store: to quote the great sages A Halo Called Fred, “It could’ve killed me but it didn’t so it’s funny.” And I go do it again on Friday. That’s Black Friday to you, smart shoppers!

Me, I can barely move. It’s humbling to feel so vulnerable. I’m grateful I never made enemies with hammer fetishes, I am so small.

Good thing we read with our eyes or fingertips. My eyes and fingertips don’t ache.
