You Know You're Sad When

You know you're sad when someone asks you,

If you were a tree, then what kind of tree would you be?

and you respond:

  • A weeping willow
  • A Charlie Brown Christmas tree
  • A sapling
  • Firewood
  • Driftwood
  • Petrified
  • The kind that gets turned into a forgotten piece of paper

I was enjoying a panoramic view of a heavily treed landscape on a hazy summer day (courtesy of a third story window) when this piece popped into my head.

The haze of the day made the green leaves appear grey, while a steady breeze caused the trees to bend to one side (as if they were drooping), making the entire vista look "sad."
