I wanna be a humor writer when I grow up. In past years, I've been very inspired following people's creative journeys during #the100DayProject so I'm jumping on board with #100DaysofHumor.
Today's edition came about because of the recent ludicrous weather in Indiana. Yesterday, everything was covered with a pillowy inch of unwelcome April snow and by last night, the skies were raging with storms & torrential rains. Our pup, Magnolia, is terrified of storms so I didn't get a lot of sleep. (She paces, pants, and is generally inconsolable, poor bippy.) This morning, when I stood in front of the bathroom mirror and looked helplessly between the bags under my eyes and my inadequate supply of miracle-making beauty aids, I comforted myself by crafting this scenario.
Indiana, accepting the award for Most Erratic Weather of 2018 from the American Meteorological Society:
*visibly drunk, only wearing 1 shoe* "Oh wow, thank you so much! This is so unexpected! It all started when I asked myself, what if spring was like summer, then winter, and then no recognizable season at all? *hic* I'm just so grateful for all the things I've drawn inspiration from – the Blizzard of 1888, Hurricane Andrew (WHUD UP, BIG A-MAN?!), oh and my favorite movie, The Perfect Storm. ZOMG, I hope I get to meet Mark Wahlberg! *swoons* *wobbles* Of course NONE of this would've been possible without Climate Change. Man, this is so unbelievable. Thank you God – you're the best upstairs neighbor I've ever had!!!!!!!"
