World got you down?
Try a little humor with chocolate - sure works for me!
I see life as a funny experience because if I didn't, I'd never go outside.
I'm clumsy. I laugh out loud at the wrong time in movies. I lose things. And forget things. I show up on the wrong day for events. And say stupid stuff. In a word, I'm a buffoon (a ridiculous but amusing person).
Once at a large gathering of fashionable women, I went to the restroom and the back of my wrap-around skirt fell in the toilet. Does that ever happen to anyone else? Of course not. I recently tripped over my 9 pound dog and fell splat on the sidewalk.
My words get tripped up, too. At back to school night, my daughter's teacher told the parents she liked to give lots of little quizzes -- "I call them 'quizzicals,'" she said. I piped up and said, "So what do you call your tests?"
When I get the blues, I read a little Dave Barry (over and over) or watch a funny movie. And eat chocolate! If you eat an M&M with a Good 'N Plenty, it will put you in a better mood 9 times out of 10. That other time you might have to resort to letting a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup slow melt in your mouth. For really serious cases, go with an Almond Joy taken in nibbles.
I've written some humorous articles off to the left there, and I'll put fresh stuff periodically on the blog. My goal was one blog post a day for a whole year. I call this "gentle humor" because it's amusing without being too trashy. That doesn't mean I've avoided topics, and I'm not above bodily function humor, in fact, it's one of my favorites because it always makes me giggle. But when I write it, I'll try to keep it clean.
Hope you have a laughy day! Suzanne
