Laugh It Off

Spread the love

Part of getting through the divorce is getting to the moment when you can finally see some of the humor in your situation. Sometimes that comes from talking to others (I highly recommend a marriage recovery group), self-reflection (you are writing, aren’t you?), and sometimes just plain funny stuff. I’m going to build a shortlist of funny videos and resources I found to help me though the times when I was pretty sure I should end it rather than live in this pain. DON’T DO THAT, by the way. Your kids deserve you. And they deserve you happy.

Funnies from Twitter: If she doesn’t kiss you by the 4th date, she’s only in it for the food.

My reach at pure humor: Ferris Beuller Gets a Divorce – My Dad’s Divorce Blog – The Movie

or perhaps Dr. Horrible’s musical style is a better vehicle for this info:

Urban Dictionary – Spenda Daddy: A man who strives to be a Sugar Daddy but just doesn’t have the funds to pull it off. She was all excited that she had finally landed a Sugar Daddy until he rolled up in his Accord. It was then she realized she had landed a Splenda Daddy, instead.
