Thank the universe for bloggers and blogging. I’d gotten a scary test result the day I discovered this entertaining blog post. I told myself there was nothing to be worried about until there was something to be worried about. It turns out there was nothing to be worried about.
But I came across Ally’s blog post, which felt like a gift from the universe in the form of a distraction.
