Back story: Joel and I entered my room, and soon after Laura entered. She looked a little shocked and shaken and kind of like she had a bad day. Well, after speaking with her for a brief moment (I never did figure out what it was that was bothering her) Joel and I left my room after I grabbed what ever it was that I was in need of. Upon the exit of my room, Joel wrote something on Laura's white board that is on our door. It read:
"If you're having a bad day, just think about how ugly the platypus is.
So, after thinking on this, I have realized that this is true. Not only will the sight of the platypus make you giggle...a lot...but also just think of the plight it has to go through every day. Honestly, think about how bad it must suck if you were one of nature's ugliest creatures ever. In comparison, you're probably better off then the platypus on any day. (Unless your dog dies, your spouse leaves you, you get hit by a car, and you loose all your belongings in a house fire.) And not only is it one of the ugliest, but it's nature's hodgepodge of parts!
So, if you are having a bad day, take Joel's advice, think about how ugly the platypus is.
And here is a platypus for you to reference....
(I have nothing against the platypus....I promise.)
