I’m a fan of the serious. Life is short. It’s important to pay attention, to consider, and having considered, to feel gratitude.
On the other hand, do not underestimate silly. It’s possible that laughter is our closest encounter with immortality. Second to all things related to carrying on the species, of course. But oh, the silly.
How the British corned the market on silly I do not know, but apparently Malcom Hardee was one of the greats of British alternative comedy. The sort that makes you feel smarter for laughing, not dumber. Even laughing out loud, by yourself, on a Saturday morning.
Have a wonderful weekend.
