|Three Wishes * Cards for Real Life|
I wasn't one of those.
I called my older sister just about every day to vent over the idiocy, the unfairness and the misery of dealing with my ex during my divorce. Thank goodness her sense of humor runs about as black as mine — I was desperate to find something to laugh about, because I was done with crying.
She sent me a great divorce greeting card that made me laugh. It also, though, made me go "hmmm ..."
A few years later, after the divorce drama had evolved into co-parenting drama, I got the same exact card from an entirely different person.
And my "hmmm ..." turned into an "aha!"
Thus was Three Wishes born: greeting cards that pair my fairly awful sense of humor with the shitty occasions that happen all-too-often in real life: divorce, lousy exes, bad strategies for dealing with life — all the things you can cry or laugh (or do both) over.
I don't update these cards often (despite the fact that I have a backlog of inspiration), but as I see friends confronting similar situations, I revisit. And I think "hmmm ..."
So you may be seeing more "hmmm ..." in the future!
