I see your words, blinking
On the computer screen
At this late night hour
When sleep evades and causes
Your words are just enough
To make me smile – no, laugh.
I try to stay away from social media as much as possible as it has the tendency to bring out all the worst qualities in me. It piques my jealousy and my anger and in normal life that is just not me.
However, when I do jump on there and have a little rifle though the comments sections, I do occasionally find a comment that has the ability to make me snort so that my coffee almost comes out of my nose.
And when I come across these comments, I can’t help but wonder who these people are that wrote such great material. And where do they live? And can they be friends with me?
After the Easter address this picture was posted and Twitter and the person who put it up just wrote ‘this only happens when a Pope is in distress’. I found it hilarious. That might say more about me than the person who wrote it.

I know what you mean, Rachel! Some of my online contacts are like that, too – able to make me laugh like that. It lifts me up, and I’m always grateful for that.
These people must be a riot on a night out!
The pope has wings?
I think it’s a bit more like the fins on that dinosaur in Jurassic Park. Perhaps it’s to warn off predators?
