And what of it?

Sometimes, I just feel like asking the world the question, "And what of it? Huh, do you really want to go there?" The other day, I was working in my class and a random thought jumped into my mind. I started laughing and I think I laughed for at least 30 minutes at the silliness of the thuought. So, what was the thought? I must explain.
We are in a financial downward spiral. Each day I wonder what I can rummage from the kitchen to cook. When the phone rings, I cringe. The rent is due in a week and there is no money to pay it. So, sometimes I feel like the world has its heavy foot on my back and pushing me down. Jim has worked at his new job now since the first of February and still has not received his first commissions check. Our Social Security Income is not enough to cover our outgo. We have reduced our food, our use of electricity, our cable, and our phones have been cut off several times and he talks them into turning them back on. I don’t know how he manages it but some how he does. Anyway, I had to give a little background for this random thought to make sense. Now, I’ll share the random thought:
"When the world has its heavy foot on you and it’s pushing your head under the mud, fart!"
Seeing this thought in print, I know it’s not all that funny but visualize as I did, a large heavy set woman with her face buried in the mud with bubbles coming up out of the mud just above her rearend. What else is left but the stinch. Might as well share it with the world before you give in and quit breathing. Who knows, if the stinch is strong enough, the world might let you up because it must flee the odor.
Well, that is my thought for the day. When all seems lost, just fart.
