Humor is our way of defending ourselves from life's absurdities by thinking absurdly about them.
Lewis Mumford (1895 - 1990)
Comedy is simply a funny way of being serious.
Peter Ustinov (1921 - 2004)
Humor is also a way of saying something serious.
T. S. Eliot (1888 - 1965)
There's no trick to being a humorist when you have the whole government working for you.
Will Rogers (1879 - 1935)
I deal with my life's situations with humor. If I didn't I'd most likely be in a rubber room somewhere by now. If I can't laugh about something I'm in trouble. Mind you, I do take some things seriously...but at my age I can afford to laugh at life and I DO!
Take for instance, I fell down the stairs on Sunday...sprained my ankle. I'm not able to work this week......I'm not able to do a lot this week.....My take on this is the confirmation that A) I'm a klutz....B) One should wake up first before taking a dog for a walk.....
It was 5Am! I didn't want to wake up because I wanted to crawl back into bed when I came in. I guess the universe had other plans. When I fell...I woke up!!!!! Every cell in my body woke up!
I recommend coffee instead......
Have a great day!
