The Onion tries very hard to be funny - but every so often it just cannot manage it and writes something that is simply true.
The best thing that ever happened to me was losing my well paid job. Of course, I did not think so at the time and I bust a gut trying to get another one. It has taken quite a while for the truth to dawn on me. But having a much less demanding and lower paid job has given me some time to rediscover what it is I like doing. Which is a bit like work but not much. And the hours are great.
