Makes Even Morose Empty-Nesters Laugh

My husband and I dropped off our youngest at college in the summer of 2020. Not only did this watershed moment happen in the midst of a freakin’ pandemic, but she was our baby. So we were faced with a mind numbing drive across the Midwest to return to what I imagined as a desolate, pointless existence. But then we found Conan and his erstwhile friend, Kevin Nealon! So we laughed through our tears. And eventually started planning how to better use those empty bedrooms.
