Is the Sun Broken?

This is day 4 or perhaps day 5 (I've lost count!) of no sun. If you are living through something like this, you know how I am feeling. Where the hell is the sun? I know technically it must still be in the sky. I've gone to college and I've taken science classes and that type of thing, so I know this for a fact. So where is it? Why do I wake up each day to fresh hope, that maybe, just maybe there could be sun?

I look out the window and sigh. No sun. There is no sign of its existence. I try to stay positive and perhaps delusional, and wear something yellow. I still love you, sun! Please come back to me! Nope. Like an angry ex-boyfriend, it just avoids me. At least the sun can't take out a restraining order on me though... perhaps that is a story for another time. At any rate, it would appear I must accept the fact that the sun is never going to return. I have tried to come up with some coping strategies that can help us all through this difficult time.

Being Inside is Fun, Right?

Here are some things you won't be doing today: getting a tan, having fun in a park, or feeling the need to wear cool sunglasses. But that does not mean you cannot have fun! Let's think about what can be achieved.

How about that closet you needed to organize? Sure, you would probably rather slam the closet door on your hand that do that, but it must be done. You don't want to do that while the sun is out, now do you? You can get that task completed right now. Don't forget to save the beach towels. That sun is bound to come back out eventually.

You can break out those old Morrissey albums and really wallow in your self-pity. Obviously, a dreary cloudy day is the best time for that type of activity. Did it start to rain, too? Perfect! While you are at it, maybe you've always wanted to try being goth. Well, now is your opportunity. Break out a bunch of dark make-up and get to work. No one can blame you. Everyone will be goth soon at this point.

Do you like to read? Well, you do now. Curl up with a good book. Not enough people read and this is the perfect time to be a smarter, better you. You don't care about any of that? Fine. Be a party pooper and just watch a movie instead. You could watch movies all day. See if you can find a movie about the sun so can remember what it used to look like.

This is the perfect time to start thinking about the apocalypse! Are you prepared? OK, that is a real downer. With the lack of sun and all this apocalypse talk, you will probably need some antidepressants and we don't want that. However, it never hurts to plan for a disaster. Where are all those old flashlights anyway? What about a first aid kit? Now is a great time to get that stuff together. After all, considering you haven't seen the sun in days, it is not that hard to imagine that a storm might be coming your way. Better safe than sorry I always say!

Hey, Wait a Minute...

Is that the sun? Is the sun really going to emerge after all? Oh yay! The sun has returned! What was I saying? Oh, I can't remember. It probably wasn't important anyway. I sometimes tend to ramble.

Well, it's been fun, but I've got to go. What do you expect of me? Did you really think I could finish this now? Who can stay at a computer at a time like this? The sun is back! Now go out and enjoy all the sunshine.
