Yes, I’m being intentionally dramatic.

Today I allowed myself to be guilted and coerced by my boss into donning our company mascot uniform (please don’t ask) for our grand opening. Just for a while. I did it because she asked, and because I knew I could entertain.

And I did. Everyone laughed. At some point I had Mary literally lying on the floor, doubled up and almost unable to breathe.

The whole time, all I could think of was this quote:

“A man goes to the doctor. Says he’s depressed. He says life seems harsh and cruel. Says he feels all alone in a threatening world where what lies ahead is vague and uncertain. The doctor says “The treatment is simple. The great clown Pagliacci is in town tonight. Go and see him, that should pick you up.” The man bursts into tears. He says “But doctor… I am Pagliacci.””

Ridi, Pagliaccio, sul tuo amore infranto.

Since you don’t want to say, I’ll assume it was a fox.
