And then this, a contender for the saddest book ever. This has absolutely done the trick of renewing my perspective. My favourite quote from the Amazon reviews:
After the divorce my diet consisted primarily of uncooked ramen and whiskey. Occasionally I wondered aloud if I’d ever have another home cooked meal again.
Then I discovered “Microwave for One” and everything changed.
(HT Andrew Sullivan)
And I think for good measure a musical interlude is required on this sunny Friday to restore our cheer.
