What scares me about death? The thought of never laughing again.
Not what you were expecting when you clicked on a “humor” piece? Well, too bad, here we are.
But let me explain…
It’s because laughter, to me, is the most euphoric thing one can experience.
Okay, that and orgasms, but it’s not exactly socially acceptable to be having a bunch of orgasms as you go about your day. But you know what you can do throughout your day? Laugh.
And you know what happens when you do? You are incapable of thinking about anything else. You are forced to live in the moment and it just feels good.
Not to mention, have you ever made eye contact with someone while you’re both dying of laughter?
I think it can be more intimate than sex because it’s pure human connection, a universal language everyone speaks.
That’s why we find humor so important at the Atelier and consider it a value, because it creates an instant connection — and you know we are alllll about that connection.
And, after working in fashion and beauty this past year, I think these industries could use a spoonful or two (or three) of it. Just to, you know, take the edge off of everyone taking everything so. seriously.
It has made me realize why Garance has leaned on, incorporated, and been such a big proponent of humor in the fashion world all these years.
So stick around this week as we laugh at ourselves and make some connections in the process. I promise to keep puns to a minimum.
