The week sure flew by and I must say I am glad it is over! It is 6:00 (RSA time) Friday night and I am already in my pajamas. That gives you and idea of the kind of week I have had and/or how pitiful my social life is.
I’ve also consumed a large cinnamon roll, had 3 cups of caffeine (I’ve been down to 1) and the most nutritious part of my dinner was a Kit Kat bar. To give you an idea of the rarity of the latter.…I typically only eat a candy bar a year. I guess I met my quota for 2006.
Nothing catastrophic has happened this week (other than the events on Capitol Hill), in fact there has been much good and blessing in it. I’ve just found it physically and emotionally exhausting thus perpetuating “one of those days” moods. During times like this when the sugar and caffeine high wears off I find that laughter usually pulls me out of my slump.
Years ago at a leadership camp, I was engaged in a ropes course element consisting of walking on a very thin rope 20 feet off the ground with only another very thin rope above me to hold onto. This was not a comfortable exercise for me whatsoever as I don’t enjoy heights. This being the case I asked my comical ropes partner (who was on the ground encouraging me) to do something to help me get my mind off the task at hand. Mr. Comedian, who many of you know, Matt Olson decided he would sing me a song. It went something like this… “Michelle, Michelle, fee, fi, fo, FELL”…followed by “Oops…umm…sorry!” He definitely got my mind off my fear although I laughed so hard I nearly plummeted to the ground.
I say all that to say, “Help me get out of my slump…..make me laugh?” Share a joke, your most embarrassing moment, a funny (short) story, a riddle…anything that might put a smile on my face and all those reading!
“Laughter doeth good like a medicine!”
