Gallo's Humor

Fellow blogger Polar Bear left a comment on fellow blogger Merlyme's description of depression in Merlyme's post "Light And Then Dark", about the importance of humor in the midst of pain, so here is my attempt:

After my "friend"'s duly concerning HIV test came back negative on Friday, and my third period (in two months) let me know again and again that I am not pregnant, with all those conflicting emotions - this is the persisting physical evidence of my very romantic desert vacation with him


- my stubbed toe hit hard on a step at a little hotel in Mexican Hat, Utah, according to my travel diary - October 29th.

Poor toe.

Stubbing my toe is actually one of the few things that lead me to curse and use expletives. Don't they hurt like the mother? And I often get so ANNOYED with myself!
