Three cheers for ham and eggs!

When you're happy,
when you're rich,
when you have that healthy glow,
when you've got the world by the balls,
Everyone wants to know your name,
everyone wants to touch "the magic."
But as soon as even a hint of adversity
tinges your smile
and the soap opera becomes boring
and people's voyeuristic appetites have been sated,
they'll trip over one another in distancing themselves from you.
Works like a charm.

I am speechless...

we are slaves to our culture...

On the upside, at least we chronic pain/illness types don't have to wonder about sincerity.
Our friends really do stick around because they realize how fabulous we are. (Which is to say, VERY fabulous).

I hope your day is going well!
