Just Laugh for a Moment…

“When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.”  “when the going gets tough, the tough get going.”  All of this sappy sentimentality is supposed to encourage us – see the sunny side, turn that frown upside down, see the glass half full.  BE OPTIMISTIC – “climb every mountain, ford every stream, follow every rainbow until you find your dream” – and I suppose there’s a fair bit of good philosophy thrown into such perspectives on life.  Still, some days, living is just damn hard work – messy, painful, less than we’d hoped for, more than we can take. When those days come – the days when life gives you lemons, here’s a new bit of advice – “find someone who has vodka, and throw a party.”
