Laugh at the ironic. This is one way to deal with absurdity when you’re faced with a bad situation. Laugh.
Compared to some of the alternatives (scream, cry, crawl in a hole, plot revenge), it seems like a reasonable approach. A strong one, even.
With that in mind, my friend gave me these tea bags for my birthday. The tag on this particular tea bag says:
“A woman is like a teabag. You don’t know her strength until she is in hot water.”
