Laughter is good for the soul. I've laughed a lot in the last few hours, mostly stuff I read on "Jeff's Japanification" but also one of my friends. She's now reading my DH's blog and quoted me while teasing me. It made me have a great big belly laugh. I need more of those. Is laughter cleansing? Or does it just make you feel better to see the humor in something?  A lot of the customers I have been in contact with lately have told me that I seem to be a person who enjoys my job. Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't, but smiles are easy enough, and it puts the customers in a good mood when there is a long wait. I need more humor in my life, lately it's matched the weather, dreary and gray and cloudy -- stormy is an apt description. And today the sun is peeking out, so maybe it will be a good day after all. Time to get ready, I promised Joy new shoes "with laces" from my first paycheck.

On another note, have you ever been down and then laughed till you wanted to cry?

Genius might be described as a supreme capacity for getting its possessors into trouble of all kinds.
