Laugh Out Loud

Laughing is Therapy...

You know what they say…”someday you’re going to laugh about this…” 
National Humor Month…only a few days left…just saw this…I don’t know about you, but I could use a good laugh today.  So let’s do this, change our mood. 
Dr. Oz has said that laughter triggers a rush of those good endorphins that can help you overcome a down mood…the same thing you get from a good workout. 
I’d love to know the funniest thing that happened to you this week.  We'll all have a little laughing therapy session just reading each others stories and comments.
It’s been a long week…my kids and I are all sick…at night it sounds like an orchestra of coughing in my house.  Complaining to my mom on the phone last night about it and so we just started telling stories…
This is a classic:
My mother  was grocery shopping and bumped her shopping cart into a stack of glass bottles of cooking oil - they all fell and broke all over the floor - she was unable to get up from the floor because all the oil made the floor slick.  So a store employee came by and poured kitty litter to help her finally get some traction so she could stand up.  So, covered with oil, stuck with kitty litter, she walked out of the store crying, and laughing.  
You either cry or laugh at life…I choose laughter.

Not this week....but 30 yrs ago when my daughter was 4 yrs. old.  She had a dog that she named "Grandma".  Well, grandma was hit by a car, so daddy buried her in our back yard.  Imagine the looks on people's faces when my daughter told them that grandma got hit by a car and daddy buried her in the yard!!!  Embarrassing then....hilarious now!

About a year ago, I bought a voice recorder to give my right hand a rest in my Spanish Lit class in which our professor always gave us tons of information. That night,to give my recorder a test, I recorded: blah, blah, blah. Turned the recorder off, (or so I thought)and forgot about it.
The next day, I walked into my classroom, sat down and placed my bag by my side. During the class, I unintentionally moved my bag, and while my professor was still lecturing, my voice was heard loud and clear:  blah, blah, blah.
Imagine me trying to find the recorder and turning it off!
Everyone laughed. The teacher made no comment, he just kept on lecturing... Thank goodness!

Laughter is the best medicine along with a big dose of prayer....

When all else fails, I stop and start giggling hysterically.  It really takes away the tension of any particular bad moment. People often give me strange looks...

This was about six and a half years ago...  
When my son, Noah, was two he ran from the foyer area at my front door, down the hallway, and into my bedroom excitedly screaming "Momma!  Momma!!!  Der a HOLY MOLY in your floor!!!"  I went to the foyer area of my home to find a rolly poly on the tile.  
I still laugh every time I think of that day.

I make homemade babyfood for my son to help combat his disease and keep him strong.  Well I was running late for church but needed to make his food.  I had recently purchased a sweet potato that you could just throw in the microwave and it would not blow up...I thought I could do the same thing with a squash...  I put it in for a minute and when that didn't cook it, I put it in for two minutes.  The thing started whistling but I didn't pay any attention to that.  when it was done, I reached my hand in to grab the squash and POP!! it exploded ALL over me Frown  It only hurt for a little bit but I was ok and everybody had a good laugh.
