I Tried Not To, Honest.
Not long ago, I wrote about Mark Wills, a moderately famous country singer that I used to know in the days before he found fortune and fame. And lips. Shit. Why didn't I notice those delicious lips in 1992? Too blinded by the gloriousness of his mullett, I guess.
Anyway, I posted a video called "Don't Laugh At Me" and exhorted all of you out there in blogland to take those words to heart. To be kind to one another, to act with compassion and sensitivity. To not mock, deride, and belittle for entertainment.
And I really, really do try to live by that.
But you know, sometimes....
Boy. It's hard.
Such was the case with the video below.
As you know, I've been feeling kind of blah, kind of meh...just really...unenthusiastic about life in general.
I ran across this video while surfing aimlessly, trying to find something of interest to jolt me out of this funk. And it did.
I laughed. I suck, but God help me I laughed. And now, after watching it five times, I'm still laughing.
There's a saying that I've always found it sort of mean spirited, but now realize, is perfectly apropos:
“Some people are like Slinkies - not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you see one tumble down the stairs.”
I hope that poor girl wasn't hurt.
