The headline on Isaac Prilleltensky’s Aug. 9 column, We ‘must’ ourselves to death, does a disservice to his perfect comedic timing and wit.
As I skimmed its headline and first paragraph, I expected to quickly move on to something else less gloomy.
How refreshing to find myself practically unable to finish it because I couldn’t stop laughing after every paragraph, every hilariously told story of the writer’s life as the “normal one” living with a “catastrophizer” and a “minimizer.” Having two of those in my own family, I could identify with the profound point he makes, but I never laughed harder. The professor “must” try standup comedy.
