Sunday Reads: It is good to laugh.Posted: July 12, 2015
This past week has become a blur to me. Not sure if it is the extreme heat, or the added depression from missing my family…especially my Uncle Johnny D, who I realized is an anti-depressant pill personified. I think it is because we laugh so damn much when we are together.
And it is not that what we laugh at is always funny, on many levels it is sad and terribly pathetic. I don’t know, we do this thing…we laugh, and it feels good. I forgot what it was like to laugh like that…and since he left a couple of days ago…it has hit me hard.
Seven years since we saw each other. And see, the thing is, we picked up where we left off. It is not something you can do over the phone. We need to be next to each other. There is an energy between us.
So. I am in a deep funk. I spent all day Friday thinking it was Thursday…and when I realized my error, I was too indifferent and exhausted mentally to give a fuck. Anyway, what I am saying is this: Here is the cartoon post I should have done on Friday. (But I didn’t do, because I am a selfish depressed shit.)
I think that taking this show of the air was ridiculous….leave the shitty shows on the air dammit.
Leave the monuments too….that is an important teaching tool.
Y’all know where I stand, Dak has made repeated post about this….I’d write something more on this but I refer to the top of the thread where I say I am too deep in funk to give a shit.
On to the cartoons from Cagle:
