Sometimes life spins so wildly out of control and everything goes so completely wrong, that the word absurd is about the only one that fits. At those times when your life could make a top-notch sitcom or dark comedy, you might as well learn to laugh along. I think that an appreciation for the absurd is a good antidote to just about any disaster than doesn’t involve permanent harm. Because sometimes, despite your best efforts, disasters happen. And laughing when they do is much more fun than any of the other options available to you when life becomes absurd.
