My life has been one great big joke,
a dance that's walked, a song that's spoke.
I laugh so hard I almost choke
when I think about myself.
From a very early age, I always said that life is an absurd joke, and the joke is on me! Now, that's not a bad thing, although at times it certainly isn't too funny. (smiling)
Laughter has been as important as oxygen throughout my life. The cousin in the SP photo who was like a sister to me (in black) and I were total laughing fools together. Right up until she departed. And sometimes even now, I think of something we shared and laugh out loud. The one request she made of me was to think of her with happiness and good memories. My response to her was that I have nothing else to choose from. We never had one argument or cross word since early childhood!
Oh, how I miss her. But a sense of humor has been my primary survival talent. Like that song, "I've always been crazy but it's kept me from going insane."
