The Best Medicine

Note: My friend Donna McNicol mentioned this incident in a Facebook post a couple of weeks ago, and ever since people have been asking me for the whole story. So here is a repeat of my blog post about it from April, 2016.

They say that laughter is the best medicine. If that’s true, I’m pretty sure that I’m going to live forever.

I learned a long time ago that a sense of humor will get you through just about anything, and one of the best things you can possess is the ability to laugh at yourself. I figure why not, the rest of the world is laughing at me anyway, so I might as well join the party.

And you never know when an opportunity is going to arise to have a good belly laugh. Here’s an example. A while back we were having lunch at a Greek restaurant in Clermont, Florida with our good friends Stu and Donna McNicol. The waiter was taking our order, and after he had Donna’s and Miss Terry’s he turned to me and asked, “And for you, ma’am?” He quickly realized his mistake and apologized and I said, “It’s okay, I have man boobs.” The poor guy started laughing and the rest of us joined right in.

It took him a while, but he finally managed to compose himself, but I wasn’t letting him off the hook that easy. I asked him, “Do you want to touch them?” And it went downhill from there. WAY downhill! By the time it was done, even people at the nearby tables were laughing.

Yep, I plan to keep laughing and having fun every day of my life. How about you?

It’s Thursday, so it’s time for a new Free Drawing. This week’s prize is an audiobook of my friend Ken Rossignol’s Pirate Trials: Famous Murderous Pirates. To enter, all you have to do is click on this Free Drawing link or the tab at the top of this page and enter your name in the comments section at the bottom of that page (not this one). Only one entry per person per drawing please, and you must enter with your real name. To prevent spam or multiple entries, the names of cartoon or movie characters are not allowed. The winner will be drawn Sunday evening.

Thought For The Day – I just wanted you to know that somebody cares. Not me, but I’m pretty sure somebody somewhere does.
