Since I know last week I brought you guys a weeper, to spice things up, this week is about laughing. In my own words, a laugh a day keeps the doctor away. That is surely the truth when laughter is equal to joy, joy to happiness and happiness only lasts you for eternity. Your troubles should be as miniscule to you now, as they were when you were five. As I read a quote the other day, I thought about how much truth it had hidden in it: drama in pre-school is when someone steals your crayons. No matter the crisis, just remember that the world is still revolving the right way.
Here’s a little tid-bit from our friend, the Internet:
A cowboy walks into a bar in Texas, orders three mugs of brew and sits in the back room, drinking a sip out of each one in turn.
When he finishes them, he comes back to the bar and orders three more. The bartender approaches and tells him, “You know, a mug goes flat after I draw it so it would taste better if you bought just one at a time.”
The cowboy replies, “Well, you see, I have two brothers. One is in Australia, the other is in Dublin and I’m in Texas. When we all left home, we promised that we’d drink this way to remember the days we were together. So I drink one for each of my brothers and one for myself.”
The bartender admits that this is a nice custom and leaves it there. The cowboy becomes a regular in the bar, and always drinks the same way. He orders three mugs and drinks them in turn.
One day, he comes in and orders only two mugs! All the regulars take notice and fall silent. When he comes back to the bar for the second round, the bartender says, “I don’t want to intrude on your grief, but I wanted to offer my condolences on your loss.”
The cowboy looks quite puzzled for a moment, then a light dawns and he laughs. “Oh, no, everybody is just fine,” he explains…
“It’s just that my wife and I joined the Baptist Church and obviously I had to quit drinking. Hasn’t affected my brothers though.”

A few days ago, I came across a website called crazythoughts.com, where they have a list of question full of wonderment, such as, why does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars, but check when you say the paint is wet? and can you cry under water? For this week, in your comments, leave me a question that you’ve always wondered about.
