It’s Not All Mary Poppins

The best medicine

Have you all heard of “Damn You, Auto Correct!” ?

I hadn’t, not before yesterday morning. Oh, my lord, that site is FUNNY.

Laugh-out-loud funny.

Pee-yourself-laughing funny.

Laugh till you cry funny.

Note that last item. If you’ve had a seriously awful time of it lately, if you’ve been putting on a good face and just plodding through it, one foot ahead of the other, if you’ve been feeling life is pretty damned unfair, all in all, and the world shockingly lacking in compassion …

If any of that is true, you might just find yourself laughing, and then laughing till the tears run down your face, and then you might suddenly notice the tears have turned to sobs which shudder through your whole body. Could be you’ll sob until there are no more tears, just the silent, heaving shudders. (Because, you know, you don’t want to be waking people at five in the morning just because that’s when you wake.)

And you might, at the end of all that…

You might feel a whole helluva lot better. You’ll look like hell, mind you, blotchy and swollen and red-rimmed and snotty, but you’ll feel fifty pounds lighter, and you just might feel like you can breathe for the first time in weeks.

It’s not always easy medicine, but it sure is effective.

And is that not the funniest damned site you’ve ever encountered?

  2. Oh my… I should not have tried to read that site while eating my breakfast… choke!

    Congrats on the good cry. My Grandpa used to say that if women couldn’t cry, they would just explode. It is so cathartic sometimes. I’ve always wished I could do it without wrecking my face, though…

    Yes, I feel ever so much better. And now (a day later), I look just fine again, too… πŸ˜›

    Also, PENIS BUTTER. Hee!

    It was! Phew. And YES, Hee!

  4. I love that site! You should really check out “texts from last night”. Not very pc, or polite, but too funny for words.

    I’ve heard of that one, but haven’t been there for ages. It’s the perfect object lesson for “Why We Don’t Drink and Text”. Heh.

  8. I read an article or a study or something that said a cry really does end up releasing feel-better hormones. So a cleansing cry really does cleanse!

  9. I find a good cry always helps. Mine usually comes after a sappy tv show. I recall Brian being very concerned when I would not stop crying after an ER episode one time. For like two hours I heaved these giant wracking sobs. But I really really felt better afterward.

  10. As a dog lover, you might enjoy (or empathize) with this cartoon. I really laughed.

  11. OMG Laura, that literally dog post/cartoon made me laugh out loud. I haven’t laughed that long in a while.

  12. VERY funny, thank you! Recently, my iPhone tried to connect my “yippeeee!” to “Tipperary!”

  13. Oh, and for more laughter, try

    Hope you are ok, and the cathartic tears helped.

  14. Thank you for this–I’m going through a dark spell of my own, and this definitely helped. I hope your troubles go away quickly, and we’re glad you have you back!

  15. Regretsy. It’s compiled of stuff that’s actually posted on Etsy. It will make you weep with laughter!
