I'm glad to know I  made someone laugh instead of being a bummer.  
I'll keep trying to be more cheerful than I have been in the past. I  
remember when I was a kid and I had a 78 record about a kid's  
birthday party where there was a clown that said:
"I used to be sad all the time until one day I looked at myself in  
the mirror and I've been laughing ever since". I keep trying but I'm  
not out of my depression quite yet to the point where I can laugh  
more than I  mope. Funny how you remember things like that.
