The author offers words of encouragement to a friend going through a rough patch.
An old friend of mine — I won’t name the person here — is going through a rough time with some very painful back problems. This post is my attempt to cheer that person up.
I won’t get into all the “everything’s going to be ok/I’ve been through similar stuff” talk. We’ve done that already. Nope. This time, I’m just going to make an attempt at getting my friend to laugh. Laughter is, after all, excellent medicine.
First, some vintage Bloom County:
Or maybe some Spinal Tap:
Or a King Diamond Christmas song:
Savage Chickens is always good for some comic escapism:
That new “Creature Double Feature on WLVI 56” Facebook group is good for a laugh, and plenty of nostalgia to make you forget about that back — for a while, anyway.
And if all this fails, gimme a call.
