Life is Better When We Laugh - Day 8

My sense of humor has gotten me through a lot.  I don't know who I'd be without it.  

 Many years ago I was having a breast biopsy.  They had to stick a needle in my breast to show the surgeon where to cut so they took me to the mammogram room, stuck the needle in my breast, then clamped that machine down and took a picture.  Uh Oh, needle was in the wrong spot so it was taken out and reinserted.  Another clampdown and then they  WALKED AWAY and LEFT me there clamped down.  Not only was I scared about the upcoming surgery but I was left clamped down and couldn't move.  "There has to be something funny about this," I thought.  Sure enough, a silly thought came to me.  I'd be walking down the hall clamped down dragging the machine behind me.  "What time's breakfast?" I'd ask.

Ok maybe that isn't funny to you but it made me laugh and it sure took the edge off how scared I was.  (Everything turned out ok)

I had my lips sewn together when I was sixteen for more skin grafting for my cleft palate.  It was one of the funniest six weeks in my life.  I was staying with my aunt, who owned a dog named Middy.  Since I couldn't talk I had to make a noise to get my aunt's attention.  Middy thought I was talking to him and he'd come running.  Of course I played it up for all it was worth until I had my aunt and her friend practically rolling on the floor with laughter. 

Now this is funny.

Stupidly funny

Many years ago a friend and I belonged to this group that doesn't exist anymore. She created a Krazy Fun page and we'd all post silly stuff on it.  It was hilarious and we had such fun trying to outdo funny posts.

A few years ago I created my own fun page on Facebook and invited her to help me fill it with silly, stupid, outrageously funny posts.  It is very popular and quite active.  I deliberately go searching for silly memes, cartoons, silly songs and more. Many days it has uplifted me and changed my mood.  I've heard that others feel the change to when they come see what's been posted recently.

So if you want a laugh or a groan check out and like my fun page here
