Sad Songs

Is it any wonder that mental health, or lack thereof, runs rampant in this country?   Especially around the holidays?  Or winter?

So while looking for some gifts in Barnes & Noble the other day, I stumbled upon this little ditty.  Nice, huh?

Cause nothing give person more self-esteem and more of a natural “can do” attitude than calling them a ‘dummy’.

And really, should it not at least be called Overcoming Depression for Dummies?   Or do you think it is for people who want to become depressed and just don’t know how to be a sad sack?  It is like ‘Swimming for Diabetes’.  You’re not swimming to get the disease!

It’s ok to get down during the holidays…or winter.  They are stressful and it is cold and bleak outside.  Dickens didn’t call it Bleak House for nothing.

I find that alcohol helps.   And cookies.

  1. My puppy’s my anti-depressant….

  2. That’s oddly funny. I was in my son’s school counselor’s office yesterday while she was pulling him out of the classroom to meet with us. While I was waiting I was looking through her bookshelf. She had one called, “I wish my daddy wouldn’t drink so much”. I wish I had gotten a picture of it, but by the time I finished laughing she had returned with my son.
