In that case ...

Half-day at work today, prior to tomorrow’s holiday. Before a brief but delicious afternoon nap, I spied a Leunig book that’s been on my shelf for a decade or so. I love Mr Curly’s irrepressible optimism, such an antidote to the (amusing) cynicism and despair in so many of Leunig’s cartoons. This one especially took my fancy.

Can’t face the future, because it sneaks up from behind, lands on your head, and crawls up your leg? “In that case,” says Mr Curly, “we’ll do somersaults and spin around in circles and generally roll about.”

I agree with the duck: “Very wise …. ”

I think I’ll take that suggestion and twirl with it.
