There are times when I read the news and I want to hide under my desk. From shootings in Virginia, to mobile phones wiping out our bees, I just don't want to know anymore.
I need laughter. I need frivolity. But somehow today, I just can't do it.
So instead, I will lower my head in a moment of silence for all that we have lost, and seem to be losing.
We will return to our regularly scheduled irreverence tomorrow. In its stead, please hug your neighbour and tell someone you love them.
