A little bit of laughing

Hey, everyone!

That’s Coral-Jade Haines during the women’s team’s 5-1 cup loss to Chelsea yesterday. The midfielder has been at the club since the 2017-18 season.

Ramble of the Day

Just checking in: How did yesterday go? How are we all doing today?

I can tell you that I spent the last several minutes laughing at this video. The tweet probably perfectly set up the video, but this video can very easily send me into a fit of laughter. I want to share it with everyone I know, even if the tweet wouldn’t make a little bit of sense. I’m laughing as I think about it; I don’t even need to watch it anymore. The thought does the work.

I suppose that’s how I’ve dealt with some of yesterday. Like I said on Tuesday (which feels like a million years ago), my strategy in most matters is to laugh so I don’t cry. (There’s the indicator that I’m not José Mourinho’s biggest fan, but I won’t make the ramble about that.) The funny content did allow me to relax my brain a bit as I woke up to a flurry of news and spent the entirety of my morning floating in it. If I’m on the topic, there’s no way this person can’t make the ramble.

How could this man not get a shout out in the Hoddle? His energy is infectious, even if I might disagree with him. The last part of it terrific, with his string of words and coffee cup in hand. It’s the greatest welcome anyone could ask for; I guess Mourinho’s a lucky guy, in that regard.

I’m just sharing how I’m doing, though; feel no pressure to agree or to laugh along with me. We’re all probably in different emotional places, and that’s all good. Again, feel free to share what you’d like.

tl;dr: Two videos that made me laugh during yesterday’s wild news day.
