Best. Line. Ever.
What good is self-awareness if you can’t use it to keep from being a dumbass?
It means that you can appreciate the comedy of your own dumbassery. Self-awareness coupled with stupidity means you're living inside of your own personal sitcom.
So in order to maintain my equanimity in the face of absurdity, most of the time, I try to get a grip and as my mother used to say when I was little and found odd things in my food, to "eat around the [insert favorite foreign to food thing here]!".
Here's to self awareness! May it get us through our days!
