Humor is the great thing, the saving thing. The minute it crops up, all our hardnesses yield, all our irritations and resentments flit away and a sunny spirit takes their place.
My Take - I know that I'm on a downward slide in my attitude and outlook when I start to listen to more comedy than music on the iPod. Laughter is the best catharsis I have, and when I'm feeling especially crummy, I want to laugh. It could be a Bill Cosby routine I listened to in diapers, if it makes me laugh, I want to hear it.
And remember folks, if you aren't laughing, you ought to be crying.
