I crack me up!

Here I go with another blog. I try to keep up the torrid pace of at least one per month, and now am dangerously close to running out of month. My faithful readers―both of them―appreciate this attempt to stay current.

The title for this blog is taken from a Ziggy cartoon I saw many years ago. The Zigster, obviously, had just said something to amuse himself; unfortunately, I don't remember what it was. But actually, the more I think about it, it's not so important what he said or thought to amuse himself. What's great is that he amused himself at all.

No one is given the task to make us feel good, or bring laughter to our lips. If we spend our entire lives being a sourpuss, that's on us. When our world is topsy-turvy, and nothing seems to be going right, that's when we need to find our center of levity, if you will, and say something that can make us laugh, no matter how outrageously stupid it might seem to others.

And now, thanks to technology, you can literally talk out loud to yourself, anywhere, without drawing any negative attention. Just hold your hand over your ear and people will presume you are talking on a cell phone. When I think of a good reason to actually own a cell phone I will write it down here immediately for all to see...

Hmm, nothing yet, still thinking...

"Um-duh-dilly-dilly-whop-whop-poodle-lee-day" ... still thinking...

Maybe I need Gomer Pyle's bucket to put over my head―he told Andy it helped him to think REAL good.

...Nah, still drawing a blank. Tell you what, just follow future editions of this blog, and I promise to immediately interrupt whatever I am writing and write down a good reason to own a cell phone...when I think of one of course.

Uh-oh, I think I just did it again. No, I didn't pee myself... I made myself laugh!

Mission accomplished.
