i've developed an incurable addiction to pandora comedy (a somewhat recent addition to the wonder that is pandora). favorite stations include louis ck & mitch patel. love. if you don't know who they are, i strongly suggest you look them up. (if you like vulgar, sexual, blue humor, that is.)
i listen to the louis ck station for a minimum of an hour a day, and, at that rate, hearing the same jokes over and over again is inevitable. (i should point out that they never stop being funny.) BUT, occasionally, i hear something new. and the other day, i heard this:
this obviously isn't exactly the audio that is used on pandora, but it's essentially the same - you get the gist.
who knew that louis ck could smack me in the face?
i found myself taking a step back and really thinking about all the little things i completely take for granted. i was on a plane last weekend that got stalled on the runway for 30 minutes. everyone around me was throwing a fit, completely irate at the idea of arriving to their destination a mere 30 minutes later than planned. i found myself getting annoyed with being on the plane for longer than necessary, but then i remembered louis ck. i got comfortable, put on some music, and remembered how amazing it is that flying is even an option.
it feels good not to be angry.
