“Excuse me sir, may I ask you what’s so funny? I could use a laugh.”

“Huh? Oh, nothing really, I’m just having a bad day, a bad year actually.”

“Oh really, why is that?”

“Well, I got up this morning feeling hopeless. So I came out of my bed and came to this ledge and I was about to jump.”

“Wow, really?”

“Yeah, but this is the funny part. I mean it seems like nothing I do I works as a success for me. Look, I went to run and I was going to jump, but I forgot to tie my laces properly and one of them caught and I tripped and ended up here on the ground.”

“Is that why you were laughing?”

“Precisely. I mean I guess it’s pretty ironic.”

“Sure, I could see that.”

“Yeah, but now thinking about it I don’t really feel like laughing anymore. . . There’s not really anything funny.”

“No?”

“No, not at all.”

“Hey man, would you like to come out to lunch with me and my wife there’s this new place right down town, I think you would love it.”

“. . . Really?”

“For sure, man. How about it?”

“Wow, I mean yeah. I really didn’t think anybody at all cared anymore, I was about to just cash out.”

“No problem, lunch is my treat so keep your cash where it is bro. C’mon.”

“Hey. . . thanks man. I really appreciate this.”

“John, my name is John.”

“Josh, it’s nice to me you bro.”

“Same.”
