sometimes when life is a little bit sad and a little bit hard, what you need is waffles at jim and joan's.

and then, sometimes, what you need to do is go back to bed for the rest of the day and just not feel bad about it. sometimes being in bed all day long means watching lots and lots of episodes of "arrested development." and sometimes it means sleeping for hours. and sometimes it means both.

and sometimes, even though you could just stay in bed all night, too, it's better to get up and go to dinner with your grandparents and uncle who love you and tell bad jokes and talk about the voter paradox and feed you chocolate.

then, sometimes, the thing to do is get back in bed and, before you leave for dreamland, think about all the things and people and places that make your life happy and good, even though it is also a little bit sad and a little bit hard right this minute.

sometimes, that's just the thing to do.

. . . and sometimes you drop your friend Kate a note or a phone call, because she's always happy to hear from you and tell you stories about baby poop, or just listen. And if you can't remember her phone number, just email her.
