“Life is too important to be taken seriously.”
– Oscar Wilde
I’m Jordan R.A. Mills: occasional writer, fledgling comedian, often opinionated. I’m a Glaswegian living in a world which makes no sense to me. The only way to survive in this crazy place is to accept that it is absurd, that nothing really makes any sense, and to take in stride every setback or ridiculous, illogical encounter: to embrace the absurdity.
Humour and laughter matter immensely to me. Without them, I could not survive. If the choice is to laugh or cry then – who wants to hang around with someone who’s forever greetin’?
This blog is designed to recount personal tales of thoroughly irrational events and encounters. There are also letters of complaint written more for my amusement and to get passed round the office than to actually elicit a meaningful response, and maybe even letters giving praise if it is deserved. I’ve put up a few anecdotes too, all true stories. Hopefully you’ll find them entertaining to read.
“There are many sides to reality. Choose the one that’s best for you.”
