Cancer Humor

excerpt from an exchange with A.:

Me: ‘I am bald. very bald. thus meaner.’

A: ‘Don’t make me laugh. Cancer is not funny.’

Except sometimes, you have to laugh. Like stepping into the shower on the day after your hair falls out, grabbing a razor to shave your legs and realizing there is nothing to shave. Nothing at all. Think of the savings on razors! All this extra time I will have in the morning! Summer legs, no work!

Removing all the shampoo and bottles from the shower: Look at all the space!
