People say that all the time, but there’s not much truth in it. Why, when you are at your low as it gets in the worst of all possible worlds, would that just happen to be the time when it’s morning in America and and you’re at the top of the world looking down on creation? So automatically it was the best of times and it was the worst of times are entities that literally turn into one another just like that?
What, is life inherently a manic-depressive psychosis? I mean the business cycle is. That’s as clear as air. But life itself? Get real.
More like, just when you thought things couldn’t get any worse, they do. That’s really terrible as I and all the rest of you can attest to, but it’s a lot more likely to happen than “it’s always darkest before the dawn.” Sad but true.
Instead of this “it’s always darkest before the dawn” BS, the truth instead is that “there literally is no bottom.” You know when people say “It can’t get any worse,” that’s wishful thinking. Well of course it can. Always and forever.
I am serious.
Now whether “there literally is no bottom” is better than “it’s always darkest before the dawn,” I’m not sure, but it can’t possibly be the slightest bit worse.
Oh Hell. It’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to, dammit.
