A serious blog about funny things…
As you go about your day, your senses are bombarded with things such as wacky billboards, terribly named products, or oddly painted cars. You see events such as people engaging with each other, and you see actions such as a driver with road rage or an elderly person being helped across the street. We see lots of good and bad every day. We often notice these things, events, or actions and tell others: “Marge, I saw the strangest thing today…”
But do you notice the funny things, events, or actions? What did you see today that was funny? From giving you a little chuckle, an out loud giggle, or a rolling on the floor with laughter until your side hurt, funny things that make us laugh are wonderful medicine that we rarely stop and take note of — and share. As The Joker said to Batman,”Why soooo serious?”
Laughter IS the best medicine. That’s why my goal of each day is to make at least one person laugh. Whether it’s the banker I call on the phone, or the store clerk when buying groceries, I try my darnedest to make them laugh, often at my own expense by making fun of something I have done. Sometimes I start laughing at myself and then someone sees me laughing and asks what’s so funny, and I say, “Well I’m just laughing at myself. I used to be so decisive. Now I’m not so sure.”
What things, events, or actions did you see or do today that was funny enough to make you stop and notice? I ask because the key to receiving the full dose of laughter medicine is to recognize that you’re laughing. And laughter, like fear, sadness, or depression, is contagious. Laughing and smiling people make others laugh and smile. Be the one who is laughing and smiling.
Joining you in laughter,
