One day, my husband entered the kitchen in his camouflage under armor and said, “I bet you can’t see me.”  My response was, “You’re right.  I bet if you take your shirt off, you’ll be half the man you used to be.”  Another time, as we were enduring a problem with water in the basement, he came upstairs wearing a snorkel and water goggles.

I’ve also been known to do some funny things.  Like go through a drive-thru wearing a fake nose and glasses. I’ve worn two different shoes and, when called out on it, declared that I had another pair at home just like them.  I once dyed my hair and it turned out green.  Today it would be fashionable – then, not so much.

When we turn a normally difficult situation into something funny, it can make things bearable, or it can irritate the heck out of you.  Personally, I love to laugh.  There’s nothing like a little chuckle, a loud chortle or a booming guffaw.  It seems to me that we take things too seriously sometimes – especially if we believe all the things we hear on the news.

We could easily fall victim to the chaos, disaster, false reporting, speculation.  Negative noise brings about negative thinking and optimism soon turns sour.  When we allow ourselves the freedom to laugh, we open a whole bunch of endorphins and soon positivity infects us again.

Sometimes our negative thoughts get the best of us and turn us into naysayers and impossibility thinkers.  Even those who normally live life with a positive attitude, may have days when there seems to be nothing to laugh about.  Maybe that’s a good thing too.  If we all walked around with smiley faces all the time, we might be considered weird and carted off to a mental facility.  Even if that were the case, think of all the fun you could have in a place like that.  No house payment to make, no responsibility, free health care … oh well, there I go again – off the deep end.


About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

  1. My husband did that, too — he walked into the room wearing camouflage pjs and said “I bet you can’t see me!” He also asked me if I minded him getting the mail like that, because after all, the neighbors would not see him. I told him I did mind.

    My hubby and I like to say that we put the FUN in dysfunction. However, regarding your final thought: hubs and I can both tell you from personal, firsthand experience that a visit to the funny farm isn’t so funny. We are Mr and Mrs PTSD, you know. 😂

    My Sunday school teacher, a long time ago, walked into the classroom wearing one brown and one black shoe. I asked him what kind of a fashion statement he was going for. He explained that he could just admit that he got dressed in the dark, but he didn’t. He then stopped to ponder, and finally said, “The thing that bothers me the most is that one is a penny loafer (complete with a penny in it) and the other has tassels. How could I miss that!”

    Oh, if you ever wear your shoes on the wrong feet, when someone calls you on it, just cross your legs and say, “No they’re not.”

  3. years ago—I got up and dressed for school before my husband had to go to work—I’d slip around in the dark trying not to wake him.
    So one day I wore two differnet shoes to shcool—a black and a blue—totally different styles…
    I had to call him asking him to please bring me one or the other…
    so much for courtesoy 🙂
