This is for real. Everything happened exactly as it is reported except for the last panel. I only thought those words in my head. What I actually said was, "Here, in the toilet." After opening a stall and pointing to the commode, of course. I hope that was enough instruction.

Really, I think the universe could have been more subtle about telling me I have it easy. Sending an elderly African woman seems awfully complex. In fact:

Dear Universe,

I get it. My life is incomprehensibly easy. Sometimes, could you please just let me grumble in peace anyway?  I promise not to take advantage and become a sniveling wimp.




  1. This is a hilarious and accurate post. I love it.

  2. Thank you, April! You have no idea how much that means to me. Comments like that keep me going all day. :D

  3. I love this, Kate. It's so true. The universe is always reminding us to count our blessings. Thank YOU for reminding Me!
