Funny Things Happen

And when they do, it's great to be able to laugh--again

AMONG THE many things I'd lost by the time I got around to AA was my sense of humor. Now--with fourteen months of dryness and maybe a month or so of sobriety under my belt--some of those things are trickling back.

For example, I'm occasionally caught with a smile on my face. I find it possible to laugh at myself. And--at the risk of being sacrilegious--I've even found grounds for laughing at AA.
