I’ve been avoiding tear jerker movies and books for a long time. I’d much rather laugh than cry because when I laugh I feel good even if I’m having a terrible flare-up.
For those just not feeling well days, or the normal pain level days I try to laugh a lot. I make myself laugh and that shows how good my sense of humor is!
Hubby and I were talking the other day. What began as a serious conversation about the terrible real estate situation in our area turned into a laughing until I almost wet myself conversation.
After I mentioned that another home is up for foreclosure right around the corner, Hubby asked if I wanted to buy it. Here’s how the rest went:
Me: Sure we’ll use all the money we have in savings for the down payment. And we can use Peanut’s college fund for the mortgage.
Hubby: What will we do about the taxes and insurance?
Me: We’ll sell my medications on the street corner. People will see lots of prescription bottles. They won’t know what they’re for.
Hubby: Great! I’m sure that we can even save up for retirement on your meds. Maybe we can buy near a Branson private golf.
Me: I think we can own the golf course.
Find humor in something. There’s always someone who has it worse off than you.
