In a Sunshine Coma

Sunshine comas. They’re a thing now. Trust me.

A sunshine coma is akin to the food coma you get after eating thirds at Thanksgiving dinner. After sitting in a coffee shop with exposure to the winter sunshine for fifteen minutes, you want to lie on the carpet in another patch of sunshine and stay there all day.

Side effects of a sunshine coma may include heightened capacity for spilling other people’s coffee all over the floor, as well as increased ineptitude at opening cupboards without knocking the cupboard doors off their hinges. Undesirable effects are compounded by drinking a lot of coffee and forgetting to eat breakfast.

Can someone please hand me a mop?

The author of Snark on the Side is not your average run-of-the-millennial generation. Jen is a contradiction in terms: a graceful klutz, a smart blond, a math-savvy English degree-holder, a southern liberal, and an adult amateur equestrian who doesn’t match her saddle pads. Snark on the Side is a work in progress, born out of years of rambling email newsletters and anthropomorphized Christmas letters, small town observations, and the ever-present irony of pursuing a career with a degree in English literature. Thanks for visiting!
