They say God never gives you more than you can handle. To which I say: What are you, nuts? Whoever thought up that little pearl of wisdom has never known what it's like to have hot flashes while simultaneously experiencing a skin-blistering heat wave such as the one smothering Toronto right now.
So God, if you are reading this . . . well first of all, welcome! And feel free to post a comment! . . . I would respectfully like to inform you that you have given me more than I can handle. I know you are terribly busy with Afghanistan and Mitt Romney and other disasters, but please, when you have a moment, a little Alaska would be nice right about now. Amen.
