You hear it all the time - "comedy is subjective". While you might believe that statement - I believe that we all need to laugh. I was listening to White Coat, Black Art this week and one of the items featured the importance of humour in healing - specifically for children. Childhood is the craziest and most innocent time of our human lives. Who hasn't heard a chld utter these immortal words: "Want to hear a dirty joke? A white horse fell in a mud puddle!" Usually the deliverer of this joke then collapses into a fit of giggles. Knock knock jokes can render a child under the age of eight into paroxysms of laughter. I like that word: paroxysm...makes me laugh!
There's a commercial playing on television these days that shows babies laughing - and no matter what my mood - it makes me giggle. So while comedy is subjective - laughing out loud is infectious, good for you and universal.
My wish for you this holiday season? Don't judge - just laugh. It takes years off of your life and smile lines are much prettier than scowling wrinkles.
Happy Wednesday gentle reader -
