Tell me your good news. I haven’t had any lately myself–so let me enjoy yours! (I haven’t had any bad news either, thank goodness, so please don’t read this as self-pitying.)

Boring is just fine, because not-boring could only mean the 3 Ds of the middle-class, middle-aged apocalypse: disease, death, or divorce.
