Laugh Through the Pain

This year has been a roller coaster ride for me.  There have been extreme highs, and there have been extreme lows. But despite it all, I’ve managed to hold on to my sense of humor. In fact, I think my sense of humor has been my saving grace. If I didn’t have it, I would probably be somewhere counting lint balls, or collecting rats like Glen from Hoarders. Believe me, I was pretty close to getting my own Lady Commander Whitehead at times.

I was talking to a friend the other day, and I was doing an impression of this zesty cat that I love. (Yes, I said zesty. I think the cat has a Logo card too.) After my friend was finished laughing, she said, “Devon, you always manage to find the humor in things.” And I do. Honestly, I’m not a serious person. Sometimes, I feel like I’m still in junior high.  I’m still at recess cracking jokes, and talking about the raunchy parts of a Sidney Sheldon novel. But that’s okay because I’m not somewhere popping pills, or snorting up booger sugar.

I know it’s cliché, but laughter truly is the best medicine. You could spend hours crying, but all that does is make your eyes red and puffy, and it ruins a fabulous makeup job. Then when you try to talk to people, they think you’re touched in the head because you can’t seem to form a complete sentence. And the snot thing is kind of gross too. So I’ll take laughter for the win any day.

If you’re going through a difficult time right now, feel free to contact me. I feel your pain. I can also guarantee that I will find some special way to turn that frown upside down. I can find magical gems on YouTube for you, I can do impressions and I can even sing the song at the 4:15 mark for you:

So call me. I’m the highly opinionated, chunky girl who loves to laugh and loves to have a good time. And I’ll be that girl all day, every day until my last day on earth.
