The times they are ridiculous

It’s been eight years since I posted this on Facebook in April 2014.

There’s an old Chinese curse, “May you live in interesting times.” I’m not sure about interesting, but I’m beginning to think we live in ridiculous times.

I watch the social media go by, and I watch the politicians do their dance, and I watch and I watch and I watch.

And the more I watch, the more I think I nailed it eight years ago.

There’s nothing wrong with the world that couldn’t be helped by a good belly laugh. 

Wouldn’t it be great if someone, in the middle of a huge argument or a heated battle or a self-righteous declaration, just waved their arms and said, “Wait, wait, wait. You know what? This is ridiculous!”

And that’s all I have to say today.
