I think I just figured out something epic. (I was going to use the word “monumental” but, OMG, how long is THAT for a choice word?!)
Every once in a while life gets overwhelming. How overwhelming?
Imagine this . . .
Think of a gi-normous bowl of jell-o (we’ll go with GREEN jell-o and there’s a reason for that, which I may get to) and put yourself right smack in the middle of this bowl of green jell-o, which, by the way, is the size of a millionaire’s house. So yeah. BIG.
Now put shackles around your ankles. You know, the kind they put on prisoners in the movies. And speaking of movies, go ahead and put on one of those un-fashionable-but- they-have-to-be-comfortable striped pyjama outfits.
Wait. We’re not done yet.
Add 20 lb blocks of cement at the end of each of those shackles you have around your ankles and now try to walk to the edge of your big, jell-o filled bowl that’s the size of a mother effin house.
And oops, the light-bulb just burned out so now you have to trudge your way to the edge of your bowl in the dark.
THAT’S what I’m talking about when I say that life gets overwhelming sometimes.
But what I just realized is that this doesn’t just happen to me! It even happens to the people who I think have it all together. Like movie stars and Donald Trump!
They get lost in the big, house-sized bowl of green jell-o with shackles around their ankles, wearing ugly striped pyjamas too!
And just knowing that I’m not the only one, makes me feel like the world is a happy, safe place.
I’ll get back to you about that green jell-o story. I’m too busy feeling warm and fuzzy inside as I picture the likes of Mr. Trump caught in the big bowl of green jell-o.
Yes, I suppose it’s a fantasy. Not THAT kind of fantasy (you perv!) but the kind that reminds me that all is well in the world. It’s my head that’s messed up. Which, of course, I can live with.
