And sometimes it takes someone else to put it evocatively enough for it to really hit you. So today I quote my friend Chalky, who in his own unique style made a comment that captures my life right now. “Every now and then,” he said, “the Universe turns around and says, aww, you look a little low. Here.”
So if you’ve been following this blog, you pretty much know that I bitch a lot about life, the universe and everything. Sometimes because I have reason to, but mostly just for the fun of it. However, the thing that almost always goes unmentioned is that Alanis Morissette had it right. Life has a fine sense of the ironic and sometimes even tends to spring pleasant surprises on you when you least expect it.
