Cooking School Journal: Personal Failure

Apparently, persons close to me were concerned that I was depressed. I guess when you call yourself a failure people get concerned. (Jot that down for future reference).

I explained that self-deprecating humor is an ironic device that writers use in prose to make the audience feel engaged and somewhat more comfortable, while easing the tension from the drama built by the subject matter itself. That was lost on the person concerned… and I think I have an appointment with “Dr. You’re-not-a-failure-give-me-a-hug” next week…

Actually things are moving along.
