When your friend walks straight into a glass door do you find it impossible to supress a belly-laugh?
If so, than I like you. Because I’m the same way. Life is too much of a mess to not find humor in as many unfortunate happenings as possible.
In that spirit, I have wasted more time today than I care to admit reading the FML blog (F*** My Life). It is a simple premise, people send in twitter-like messages at the sad, awful, and downright hilarious things that happen in their lives. A friend was laughing out loud in the middle of a Business & Law class as she was reading these, and I discovered the site when asking what was giving her stitches. I may be late to the party, but I’m glad I made it.
The purpose, say the authors: This site is a place to “let it all out” and unwind by sharing those little things that screw with your day; it allows you to realize that you are not alone.
Some of my favorites so far…
–Today, I found out that I am being sued for losing a set of wedding photos that I took. I lost them by being mugged on the way home after the shoot and £10,000 worth of equipment was stolen from me. FML
–Today, I received my passport in the mail. They got my birthdate wrong. Then I picked up my birth certificate that I had sent in with the application. Turns out my parents have been celebrating my birthday on the wrong day for 16 years. FML
–Today, my crush talked to me for the first time. He told me to stop staring. FML
The best so far…
–Today, I fell asleep. I felt something on my face. I batted it away. It was my hamster. It died from a concussion upon hitting the wall. FML
