Out of the mouths of babes….in a down economy

You say it’s been a warm summer? Let me say this about that: I would pay my Air Conditioning bill before paying for groceries. I mean, when you think of it, who can eat when your “eyeballs are sweating”?  (Donovan Cashen) Given these circumstances, it’s not totally unexpected for me to go from the pool to the grocery, on occasion. Recently, I had a half day off and ran into a Dot, a co-worker, and her five-year-old daughter, at the store, after work.  She was dressed from work; I was fresh from the pool…in a sensible floor length t-shirt dress over my swimsuit.  Now, sometimes, I’ll throw this frock on after a shower and Jeff will ask, “Why do you have THAT on?” (Meaning: it’s a dress, are we/you going out somewhere? Also meaning, it’s not a rag.) Dot’s daughter asked (1)who I was? and (2) why did she know me? Dot explained that we worked together. Kaley looked my dress up and down and asked her, “Mommy, is she laid off?” Hey, Art Linkletter, are you laughing too?!?

Speaker~Author~Certified Laughter Leader (Seriously!) I look at life with a sense of humor and the gift of laughter and help organizations do the same. I try to write the way I talk, so you will find me less stuffy than Miss Huddleston's English Class and and a step above a toddler. I figure that if we all "play attention" to humor in our daily routines, and we'll all have more joy and less stress in this thing called life.
