I was in a pretty good mood and I just couldn't stand it.
I just couldn't leave well enough alone.
I typed the name of a small town in Google's search field, clicked on one of the first returned links, and felt my eyes welling up before the page had even finished loading.
To cheer me back up, here is a joke from one of the 'blogs I read:
A five year old and a four year old are upstairs in their bedroom.
"You know what?" says the five year old, "I think it's about time we start swearing.
The four year old nods his head in approval.
"When we go downstairs for breakfast I'm gonna say "hell" and you say "ass" OK?"
"OK," the four year old agrees with enthusiasm.
The mother walks into the kitchen and asks the five year old what he wants for breakfast.
"Aw hell Mom, I guess I'll have some Cheerios."
WHACK! He flew out of his chair, tumbled across the kitchen floor, got up and ran upstairs crying his eyes out.
She looked at the four year old and asked with a stern voice,
"And what do YOU want for breakfast, young man?"
"I don't know," he blubbers, "But you can bet your ass it won't be Cheerios."
