Humor Is That Special Sauce…

Can I get a side-order of humor with my reality sandwiches? Thanks, Allen. Make that ‘to go’, please, also, and don’t forget the pickle, haha. But all kidding aside, laughter is the best medicine, now, is it not, to cure what ails you? And IMHO that’s true in some kind of direct proportion to the severity of the ailment, whether spiritual, psychological, or existential, i.e. the worse you got it, the more you need it; laughter, that is. But even on a normal day, humor is a good palliative for what ails you, just a spoonful of sugar to help reality go down. Because suffering is the bottom line, now, isn’t it? In Buddhism it is. But that doesn’t mean that we have to be miserable. We just need to keep the suffering to a minimum. That’s more important than having the latest fashions…
