Why do you guys even let me go to Ned's? You know it makes me show up here late. In three weeks, is EVERY post gonna be late because THERE Ned will be, distracting me?
On top of that, so to speak, due to things that happened in the world yesterday, my job is going to be super extra ungodly busy today, and it will be insane. Have girded loins. Am ready. But I'd better go try to get there a little early, or at least on time for once.
So remind me to tell you how BOTH dogs broke into the cat food, with assy Edsel leading the trail, and how Lu is lying under this chair right now all bloated and satisfied like Templeton at the end of the fair, but that is a whole story complete with dog facial expressions that must be told about in breathless detail, and I have no time for that today.
What I DO have time for is to ask you a Q, and thanks for the book recommendations yesterday. Today my question is this. The other day someone or other commented, "You rarely seem depressed, but when you are, what do you do about it?"
(Poor Lily just came in and stood right next to Lu's gassy self. She was INCHES from Lu's haunches when a COMET of gas shot out, and you should have seen Lily's fluffy recoil. Poor proper Lily. She's practically waving her lace hanky.)
Anyway, I told said reader that I am professionally depressed. Depression runs in my family, and if you ask my grandmother, she'd tell you she was the INVENTOR of depression, and certainly the Most Depressed Person We Should Feel Bad For on Planet Earth Ever®. Then she'd look out the window and sigh.
So, the fact that I seem not depressed all the time is a miracle, and I must be Meryl Streep of faking cheerfulness, because my insides are crazy, y'all. My insides are a Pink Floyd record. But I really don't wanna go around like my grandmother, who drove us all berserk with her lying around with a hand to her head. But the real me lies around with a hand to her head.
Which leads me to ask, what thing are you hiding really well? Maybe you aren't even all that aware of it. But what do you THINK it is? You can sign in anonymously if you wish.
SIGHHHHHH (look out window).
