I will try. I had to try to put a happy face on some deeply depressing things. Normal people apparently don't like to hear stories of how your entire life shit the bed unless the dry cleaning bill got comped in the end.

The moth thrives on tragicomedy. You gotta make it seem like a complete fiasco

Or unless you make it tragic and funny. After all, comedy is tragedy wrapped in a snowball.

Quiz Question for all of Hubski: what famous Canadian novel involved a premature birth and ensuing disasters because a stone was wrapped in a snowball?

Ah, sounds a lot like Fifth Business and if I didn’t know you had been an English teacher in Ontario before this would have given it away.

Yes! Fifth Business! Great book. The stone in the snowball threw several lives off in that book.
