captain Inappropriate Humor strikes again

I don't know what is wrong with me, other than Pregnancy and Extreme Over Stimulation Due to Too Much Going On (a lot of it not on the side of GREAT). I've been in a slump for a couple of days now, and was strolling around the many, many blogs I read (it's almost embarassing, but if I didn't think of these people as my Pretend Friends, I'd be even more sad, so there). I came across this entry from Plain-Jane.

It's a thing about her cat that was just put to sleep. And I'm not even sure if it's meant to be funny, but dude-on-a-stick, it had me laughing so hard at my desk, I actually had little bits of Snapple droplets stuck to my monitor (yessssssss - we're back in SNAPPLE MANGO MADNESS). I just need to know from you, my polite and long-suffering friends: Is it really that funny? You have to read to the END - just keep reading. And then break the news: Is my funny bone broken, malfunctioning, or wonderfully intact (if still odd)? I thought of going in and commenting, letting Plain Jane know how excellent her post was, and how much I enjoyed it. Really - I NEEDED TO LAUGH LIKE THAT. IT WAS DEEPLY THERAPUTIC. But I lost the nerve when all the other comments were of the "I'm so sorry about your cat" and "Telling children about the death of a pet is very hard" variety. I HAVE A STONEY BLACK HEART.

You do not have a stony black heart. You held Stella and CRIED for how long when she died?

And the post is funny. I didn't spray water on my monitor, but she writes in such tones that it's both comical and odd and sweet and sad all at the same time.

You are not broken. Just pregnant. So maybe a bit off, but not broken.

I love Jane. So I am totally impartial in this area. I think everything she writes is funny.

the wife & tessie: thanks for helping me to see that I'm not quite over-the-edge crazy **yet**. Jane really IS hilarious, isn't she? What with the bribing of the cat with the treats and the wet food? I'm still laughing.

I didn't finish reading it the post that you linked to... but just based on knowing you, I don't think you have a heart of stone!

I thought it was pretty funny. Not laugh out loud hilarious, but pretty funny. Especially if you own a cat.
