A hilarious argument in favor of taking life a smidge less seriously

Popular humor writer Anna Lind Thomas had an epiphany after her essay about a humiliating fart went mega-viral: Everything’s funny . . .eventually. You’ll cry-laugh your way through the many grave offenses she’s endured, like

not getting credit for Lady Gaga’s career,an epic financial crisis,and exercising while her children dole out biting critiques about her dimpled thighs.

Anna’s wit, charm, and painful relatability will encourage you to remember that your most humiliating moment may be the best thing to ever happen to you—or at the very least, it’ll make for a really good story.
