We make and laugh at jokes. Macabre jokes. Morbid jokes. Tasteless jokes. Dumb jokes. Anything to relieve the tension. Everyone is on his or her phone. Texting loved ones. Texting friends and family and co-workers. Checking Facebook. Checking Twitter. Trying to find out what's going on. I check my email, including the marketing spam. I wonder if it's crass to do some online shopping to relieve the stress.

I could only get off the bus at the Naval base and had to stay on for the entire ride into town.
