“Let me go find a container for my Joy”

a simple sarcastic retort that can be used in such classic situations as this one:

Mom: Your Aunt is coming to stay with us for two weeks! Aren’t you excited?

Me: So, so excited. In fact, let me go find a container for my joy.

I’ve been saying it for years. Now I finally I found it.

I found a container for my Joy.


Unfortunately, it remains empty, like my soul. It sits on my desk at work, hoping for a donation.

Damn. maybe I should have put “Chocolate donations welcome”.

I clearly didn’t think this through very well.
