Helping Out

The Sun said, “Hey!”

I looked up and said, “What?”

The Sun said, “Do you like my illumination?”

I said, “Are you feeling insecure?”

The Sun said, “Yes. I could really use some praise and encouragement.”

I said, “Well, first of all, I’m stunned that people aren’t walking around going, ‘Oh, my God, there’s a wondrous burning ball of sun in the sky!’ Second, I’m so glad that I don’t have to ask you to show up. You come to work even if there are clouds in the sky. Third, if you weren’t doing your job, I wouldn’t be able to see the amazing trees and stuff…Are you feeling better?”

The Sun said, “Yes, yes, yes! Thank you soooo much! I really mean it!!”
