WHAT I KNOW
I recently started a new job, which means I've been forced to meet all new people and make friends. The other day at lunch we were discussing our level of stress due to everything being far from where it should and in a very serious dead pan I said 'I'm going to kill myself."
I got a couple shocked looks and an exasperated 'WHAT?!' which was when I recalled that these people don't know me. I laughed and explained when things go bad I like to say, 'hold on, I'm just going to go jump off the roof and then I'll be right back.' Everyone laughed with me this time.
We we all rejoiced in our cynical nature of the whole thing and moved along. I realized I can be funny because I know that when one door closes, it locks behind you. And that's okay, you just try the next house.
