Writing Prompt

There are certain queer times and occasions in this strange mixed affair we call life when a man takes this whole universe for a vast practical joke, though the wit thereof he but dimly discerns, and more than suspects that the joke is at nobody's expense but his own.

Herman Melville

Even the most terrifying situations must be guilded with an edge of humor. If you can manage a genuine, heartfelt laugh in the face of death - that is a celebration of life.
