Steve Allen had said that comedy is tragedy plus time. And if you look back on some inconvenient episodes in your life, you realize that some of them were actually-really-maybe-kinda funny. Of course, it doesn’t feel like that in the heat of the moment, but after gaining some perspective, you can have a good chuckle about things.
