Funny in the Midst of All That

M.J. Wilde at the Albuquerque Tribune is a treasure. How she manages to be funny in the midst of all that is a wonder:

Even sleeping with a tube down her throat, she held her chin high, dignity intact. We were all waiting to talk to the doctor. And, like chili cheese fries, they’re never around when you really, really want them.

It takes strength to be snarky at a time like that.
