Die Laughing

I spent most of the day in deep thought. I worked alone this shift, so there was no one to interrupt and it felt great!  The trouble with giving my mind such freedom though, is that it can wonder down some pretty dark roads, get lost in peculiar places or rest comfortably in familiar spots that bring comfort and joy. Well, that’s exactly what happened — all of it!!!
I contemplated life (past, present and future); fantasized about vacation; worried about my ailments; fretted about the possibility of needing surgery; thought about making drastic changes to my apartment (tax refund still pending); and some where along the way (I don’t know why) I thought of my own death. Yikes!!

In the midst of all this madness, a WordPress notification came in. Someone had responded to a comment I made last night about a post that was so hilarious I laughed til I cried and that’s exactly what I wrote on the comment! Then abstractly, another thought popped into my noggin,  “when I die I want to die laughing”.  Yeah, my brain actually went there!

You see, happiness has been somewhat illusive for me over the years, and the last 3 years have been especially rough. As a result, laughter has been great medicine for me lately and has done wonders for this broken soul.  So yes,  if I were to die today,  I would want it that way — laughing hysterically, on the floor, happy!

So without further ado, here’s the post that had me in stitches last night and has now prompted today’s offering to you.  Enjoy!

    1. Ah yes, with my heavy stress load, I’m surprised my blood pressure is always normal. I’m grateful especially since most of my family members have high blood pressure issues.

      1. I had no idea cats were so difficult. I’ve always had dogs and peanut butter always did the trick in 30 seconds flat!
