I was going to save this post for closer to the end of the month, but I am absolutely exausted today, so I’m gonna go ahead and do it now.
I have used humor to cope since going blind, and during my research, I found a link on this page that just said “fun”. I read some of the stuff and just knew I’d have to do a post about it. The page gives little snippets of humor with links to those pages. Unfortunately I can’t link directly to the fun page because it’s one of those sites that never changes the URL. Here’s some of what I thought was fun, though:

Childhood is a syndrome which has only recently begun to receive serious attention from clinicians. The syndrome itself, however,is not at all recent.

Ok, that’s all for now. I was going to include the links, but I am at about a half a spoon right now. I think the link I gave at the top of the post took me to the page with these.
