Do not read any further if you are sensitive or delicate. Do not read any further if you have cancer and take it terribly seriously because today's post is all about the really bad comments that I or friends of mine have made that have made me laugh. Believe me, black is the new humour and I have been laughing a great deal....
In pub man lights up next to me first asking if I mind. "No, " I say, " I already have cancer."
In pub, my glass is empty. I push it to a friend whom I have already bought a drink and say, "give to breast cancer, buy me a drink."
In staffroom someone brings in doughnuts. " You shouldn't eat those," I say, " they are carcinogenic" and help myself to one grinning.
Talking about my used to be huge libido to friend saying that all I want now is to curl up and sleep in someone' s arms. She says that that is how ALL women feel normally - welcome to the female race....
Self pity phase with brother and we talk of meeting up next week. He says not worth it as " you won't be here..."
Made me laugh....
Quite seriously though, it is very hard indeed to be scared by something one can laugh at.... Can you think of a sick joke?
(Oh, and if you found this all in extremely bad taste, you are absolutely right and normal service will be resumed sometime...)
