Maybe we should be a little goofier...

Friday, April 12, 2013


Yesterday as I was pulling out the the supermarket, I saw a cute little old man get into his very expensive and nice Mercedes Convertible and put on a pair of giant novelty sunglasses.  He had a big smile on his face as he peeled out onto the street.

I had to laugh. He looked absurd. If I was related to him, I probably would have been embarrassed. He looked certifiably insane. A crazy person. 

I looked about the parking lot and everyone had a smile on their face. They were laughing with him. He was spreading joy.  Perhaps I need to be a little sillier as I age. Anyone with me?

I love a good laugh...I would have been laughing, as I said , "that guy's nuts." LOL I really try to keep my sense of humor..it gets me through some hard times. I wish we could teach our children to laugh things off at a young age. When I was young, I suffered because I did know I could use humor to make light of pain. Get yourself a pair of those glasses sweet Japoilna.:):) xoxo,Susie

I definitely think silliness is underrated-let's just do it! (Will you come bail me out if I'm arrested?)
Have a good weekend.

You are so right! It wouldn't hurt any of us to take things less seriously sometimes. Life is hard enough as it is. I think that's cute that that man did that. Somehow I don't think a younger person would've come off as cute doing that though. LOL!

Oh, I loved this story, Japolina, and I really needed it today.

Thank you for your comment on my 'cousin' post. I appreciate it so much.

Yes, we need to be sillier, don't we?

Love,

I like the odd bit of silliness too, I wish I had seen the man with the giant specs, we all need a giggle.
