Cornered often wanders into “what if” territory. That can be helpful when you need to think differently or get outside of yourself for a moment.

Eventually, all the excuses, rationalizations, crazy attempts to control or defend lead you here. Cornered, with no way out – you just gotta laugh.

All of which is my way of saying, thanks for popping by, hope you enjoy.

Cornered: verb

Forced into an awkward, embarrassing, or inescapable position.

To trap in a position of great difficulty or hopeless embarrassment.

Yeah, that’s it. We do funny or odd things when cornered. Out of desperation –sometimes quiet desperation.

Cornered finds humour in the situation.

We’re not sure what to do, so we fake it to make it. The results can be quite hilarious.  

Humour gets to go places polite company simply can’t. The results can be awkward, surprising or even helpful and healing. That boil needs to be lanced.
