A good laugh

Ima Lafalot

Some people don't seem to understand my sense of humor. I love the absurdities and ironies of life.

Fortunately I wasn't planning to entertain any guests this Thanksgiving Day. My stove and oven don't work. This being a holiday weekend, they probably won't be fixed until Monday. So I went out and bought food I didn't have to cook. Cans. Cans of vegetables, cans of beans, cans of tuna. That sort of thing.

Last night I thought I would have a bowl of beans for dinner. While opening the can, my faithful, dependable can opener, which has served me well of 25 years, at least, broke.

Now if you think I'm moaning and grieving and telling a tale of woe, you're wrong. I'm laughing. What could be sillier than a man with a shelf full of cans and no can opener on Thanksgiving Day. If you don't think that's funny you've got no sense of humor. DB

Wow DB, it just keep on doesn't it. Do you have a pocket knife or something you can open those cans with? Hope you have a good day..maybe you can get a turkey sandwich somewhere. Linda in WA

Interesting. I would have been so cool with that ... only I would have bought some Butterfingers and some soda pop to tide me over until I can get to a Mickey D's.

I wonder how often do you think about how cool your life is? I mean, it is pretty cool ... it could be some much worse and that happens before it get so much better.

*shrugs* That's what I do, I *shrug* and get back after it. Hope you are going to do the same!!

Doggone it DB. It sounds like Murphy's Law has slapped you in the face. Glad you can laugh about it.

Sometimes, laughing is all you can do. It happens a lot around here.
