And so nature's great cycle continues

Last night, I had a dream in which I was talking to an acquaintance who was feeling bad. At one point, she said something like "And I keep getting depressed!"

In the dream, I wanted to make some sort of wry point about how what with one thing and another getting depressed is a pretty normal reaction to things and you shouldn't worry about being depressed because that just makes it worse, so I was going to say something to the effect of, "If you don't get depressed sometimes, that's not normal!" and go from there. But instead I decided to say, "If you don't get depressed at least once a _____, that's not normal!"

But then I had to think about how common getting depressed really is. Once a year? No. Month? Mmmm ... no, probably not. I ended up saying, "If you don't get depressed at least once an hour, that's not normal!"

Immediately upon saying this, I felt very depressed indeed.

Go, subconscious!

Now I will go back to bed.

(In the dream, after I said that the woman I was talking to said, "What?" and I said that I couldn't repeat what I had just said because it was too depressing. Doesn't keep me from posting it here, though!)
