Humor

10 posts in this topic

I try to keep a smile at all times, though it drives my hubby bonkers when I am pleasant to the doctors when he knows that I am in agony, but I was raised under the iron rule of "smile no matter what... or else" and old habits are hard to break, so I tend to use humor as a weapon and a tool against life.

 

(After all, you can either cry or laugh, and with severe dry eye I find it easier to laugh anyway ;) )

I got quite a chuckle this morning looking through a recent magazine. There is a picture of Charlie Brown hung up on a Windmill/Generator (new kind, not Holland kind) with his kite. I couldn't stop laughing, unfortunately, I was trying to swallow a bite of breakfast.

 

I'm always finding something to get a smile going from.

Penny,

 

I think that's why I'm never taken seriously. I make a joke out of everything and I always keep up my humour, and make people laugh, when I want people to remember me as a smiler not a moaner. Hahaha.

Do you ever find yourself laughing at stuff that no one else thinks is funny? I do all the time and it makes me laugh even more because I seem to have some kind of obscure sense of humor that only I understand. It's lonely sometimes laughing by yourself and then you start to wonder -- is something wrong with me? Or is something wrong with everyone else? Why can't anyone see why that is funny?! Then paranoia sets in and you start to wonder ahout your meds.....

 

Live Love LAUGH!!!


Take care,

Barefut

Hello All

 

My husband and I have the same sense of fun and humour which is great because we can laugh together, particularly at sclero. My sister is a great laugher as well as is her new beau.

 

People love to laugh so they can laugh with me or at me as long as they're a laughin'! :lol:

 

It's also a very good tool, along with a big (while it can be) smile, for combatting difficult people, it un-nerves them and breaks their stride.

 

Yes Serena I also laugh at things others don't, when working I would go out for lunch and walk along talking and giggling to myself. I met my husband one day for lunch and he saw me walking towards him chattering away to myself and he said I looked quite mad. Hey, maybe that's why I always got a seat on the bus...alone?

Oh, I am definitely a person who giggles out of the blue, leaving those around me puzzled. I call it my "air of mystery" while my husband calls it "the woman I suddenly don't know".

 

I also tend to sing at the top of my lungs with the radio, often my own words since I can't remember the actual words. This can be very entertaining if the windows happen to be down and we are at a stop light... the looks we get from cars around us as I belt out something along the line of "Oh hooptie high, oh hooptie low, because it's yellow, and goes below, we all live in a yellow submarine..." It is bad enough that I am singing loud as I can, but the hubby is usually driver-seat dancing his heart out at the same time. (it is usually a mix of the cabbage patch, saturday night live and signaling to steal second)

 

Amanda, I agree 100%, laugh with me or at me as long as you are laughing!

 

Warm hugs and offers to start a sing along with anyone who knows all the words to 'Penny Lane'

I love to laugh!! And I love to make others laugh and smile. Here are some things that should do the trick.

 

Sunday morning when I left for services I forgot to put my TMJ night guard in (I wear it most of the time), but I thought, oh well, I'll make it till I get back home. When I got back home I couldn't find it ANYWHERE!! After looking over, under, and around everything I decided to give it a rest. Monday morning before I put the trash out, the light bulb went on! I took all of the trash out of the bag piece by piece and guess what I found. I had thrown the night guard in along with my breakfast trash. What a woman! And then there's the time I misplaced my car registration after having my taxes done. Couldn't find it so I just renewed my plates for the year. My friend called me a couple days later laughing her head off. She found the registration in a book I loaned her.

 

Hope that brought some smiles.

 

Christy
