4 posts | 3 read | 6 to read
A girl, a potato, and a very sad flamingo star in this charming sequel to Im Bored by New York Times bestselling author and comedian Michael Ian Black and celebrated illustrator Debbie Ridpath Ohi. Everyone feels sad sometimeseven flamingos. Sigh. When Flamingo announces hes feeling down, the little girl and Potato try to cheer him up, but nothing seems to work. Not even dirt! (Which usually works for Potato.) Flamingo learns that he will not always feel this way. And his friends learn that sometimes being a friend means you dont have to cheer someone up. You just have to stick by your pal no matter how they feel. Even if theyre a potato.

I'm Sad | Michael Ian Black

I‘m having an awful day here, I can hardly see the keyboard from tears. My scan results were bad, I‘m in a lot of pain and I‘ve had a huge fight with the hubby and now he‘s gone for three days & I‘m just sitting here on my own and sobbing. I‘m sorry for venting but I needed to tell someone. I‘m just gonna curl up & watch trashy tv for awhile.

ValkyrieAndHerBooks I'm sorry you're having such a rotten time! Sending ghost hugs over the internet to you! I hope things get better for you soon! 2mo

Perfect Book. Perfect message. Perfect illustrations. Just Perfect. I love that the flimingo does not find his happy in the end, but instead learns it‘s okay to be sad. That your friends are with you through happy times, and sad times. Love this BOOK!

Because I posted that he was sick it feels wrong someway not to post that Burt passed yesterday. I am so heartbroken. I was able to spend yesterday with my nephews and niece but today it's back to work so if anyone wants to tag me in adorable photos of any stripe it would be much appreciated. Social media is weird, thanks for being patient with the awkwardness. Back to books when I feel like reading again...

SandyW We had to put our girlie down 2 weeks ago today. I can tell you it gets a little easier. And yes, social media is weird. It's odd to get likes for your negative news. But the support of this community is indeed helpful. So I'm sending healing thoughts your way, and hoping you will be able to remember him with more love and less sadness in the future. 2y
megt I‘m so sorry for your loss. Sending hugs. ❤️ 2y
squirrelbrain I‘m so very sorry. Console yourself by knowing that you gave him a fantastic loving life. We had one of our old girls put to sleep a few months ago and my godmother sent me a lovely card saying ‘she really fell on her paws when you chose her‘ and I‘m sure the same applies to your special boy hxx 2y
