On my way through the parking lot while walking to my office, I was attacked. A guy ran up and threw a bottle of Omega 3 pills at me. I was very thankful that my injuries were only “Super Fish Oil.”

Are you laughing or moaning?

I am still chuckling over this joke. My wife rolled her eyes. None of my kids reacted over the thousands of miles that separate us.

When I hear someone tell a joke that has a great set up and punch line, I react. It feels good to laugh. Funny is healthy, enjoyable, and makes the day sparkle.

Ordinary people laugh a lot. The older they get they keep laughing. In fact they laugh more often and more heartily.

My years have loosened me up. Some things that put me into a panic, now make me laugh. When I see young men furrow their brow, I just laugh.

Jocularity may or may not add years to my earthly life but it sure is fun regardless. Humor makes me smile. There seems to be a release of pressure, stress, and concern when our funny bone is activated.

A crusty curmudgeon brashly ordered his wife to take over and drive. He had to change the batteries in his hearing aids. They were on their way to warmer climates from their Michigan home.

The old goat was fussing and cussing, while fumbling with his hearing aid parts now spread all over his lap.  She pulls over.  Warren gripes, “Whatcha doing?” Then, he notices the flashing blue lights of a State Patrol car. “Ha! You old bitty, now you’ve gone and done it.”

With the car stopped, the salty grouch gets more snarky when he glances back at the approaching officer, noticing that the officer is a female trooper, “She ain’t having no mercy on an old hag like you!”

“License, please,” the officer asked.
“Eh? Rude Warren intrudes, “What’d she say?” ”
“No worries, dear, she just asked for my license.”
“I notice that you’re from Michigan,” commented the officer.
“Eh? What’d she say?”
“It’s fine, dear, she just said that we were from Michigan.”
“Never been to Michigan myself,” said the officer, “but I had one blind date with the ugliest crudest guy in the world. He was from Michigan.”
“Eh, what’d she say?”
“Oh, she just said that she thinks she knows you.”
