Go Eat A Sandwich!

I really don’t want to blog today because I’m in no mood to be clever and funny. My head hurts and I have to be a single mom today. I had a loooong night with little sleep. My allergies are acting up (again). Blah blah blah.

But Racher and I were texting, and I thought I’d share our convo with you:

Racher: How are you today?
Me: Suck.
Racher: Eat a damn sandwich and be happy - that’s all it takes.
Me: I heard killing yourself works too? (I’m being sarcastic here, folks)
Racher: Actually it does work more permanently but I think the ‘make yourself be happy and eat a sandwich’ is less dramatic besides you need to buck up and suffer some more life is easy…but hum it’s not easy or something…
ME: You’re right. There’s so much more suffering I don’t want to miss out on. I’ll be a greedy little bitch and stick around.
Racher: Yeah, Bitch!

So there you have it. Maybe we should all be grateful for our suffering and just go eat a sandwich (because I hear that solves everything!)? I think so. I think if we all lower our standards a bit and realize life has lots of letdowns and sadness ahead, then we’ll make it just fine. :) Anyway, it’s sarcastic and weird but I actually feel better. Thanks for your twisted sense of humor, Rachel, you helped out this ‘ol treasured (I’m sure) friend of yours.

Your friend is very wise. It really does work. I'm a fat sandwich-eating lard and happier than I've ever been. :)
