When I was growing up, people would often comment about how serious I was & to this day, I can still get quagmired in the intense bog. One of the things that helps me to lighten up is to laugh at myself – to not take myself so seriously. So from time to time, I review some of the silly, goofy & even stupid things that I’ve done just to lighten my thinking. Here’s a sampling:
- For Thanksgiving one year, I had heard that convection baking was superior to the regular oven baking. Of course I didn’t get any more information & proceeded to burn my turkey, sufficient only for a burnt offering. We didn’t eat turkey that Thanksgiving ,)
- my first car never had an oil change in 3 years – didn’t know that was important
- I used to work in a data entry position & would take messages for my co-workers. I decided to find the phone number of a local mortuary & leave one a my co-workers a message to call Myra Mains with just the phone number for the mortuary ,)
- I tried to toast whipped cream on a pie – we renamed the outcome to “puddle pie”
Laughter is good medicine!!
