So once a year we get together and put on a show. A group of friends get up on the stage and sing, lip sync, tell jokes etc. so the rest of us can laugh at them. It is one occasion during the year when our auditorium fills up with standing room only. My husband and I bought two of the last three tickets. We were very lucky.
I did not realize how much I needed a really good laugh. We have some very big talent in the park but it is not that so much as the willingness of people to put their dignity on the line for our pleasure that brings everyone back.
The queen of the lip sync turns 80 today. She can bring any vocal to life. I don't know how she does it. We love her performance a lot. We also loved the guy in the background lip syncing with her song, I am a Natural Woman. I know...you needed to be there but still....
As we were leaving the auditorium I stood talking to a younger woman. She smiled at me and said It is so good to have a really good laugh isn't it?
That was when it hit me that we have stopped laughing as much as we used to. That is not good. So, I challenge you to find a story or picture that is funny to post on Facebook or Twitter. We all need a really good laugh and you can make a difference. Post them to me
Have a wonderful day!
