Ya know, the funny thing about the funny thing is that I find that when I laugh at myself, I enjoy my life more. I step back, see the hilarity in a ridiculous moment of blondness, and revel in Him and how He made me...and laughing, even if it's only for a brief moment, makes life lighter, more palatable.
Ok, the funny thing today was a conversation about life when we were all younger...remember the shows, the movies, etc.? Well, we were discussing different shows we watched on TV; shows like Green Acres, The Jackie Gleason show, Romper Room, The Dick Van Dyke show, and so many more.
(Ok, for all you younger people, YOU have no idea what you missed-you can always go to Wal-Mart and get these shows on DVD for a buck!)
Then I remembered "The Red Balloon" and there were two conversations going on at once...about that movie and a song about ninety-nine balloons, and I blurted out, "Was that movie based on a true story?"...think about the blondness of me believing that this red balloon had a life of its own and could follow a little boy all over town and then it DIED!
How tragic for that boy! The therapy he had to endure because his world ended the day those bullies chased him and his balloon and then they killed his balloon...oh, my word...!
Trust me, at that moment, we all laughed, but I'm not sure if it was because they thought it was funny or they were worried about me and just laughed off my insanity! The question came out quicker than my brain could remember what the movie was about, and by then it was too late! (Everyone really knows NOW how Blondie I am!)...
Laughter is really a gift. Medicine, Solomon said...He must have known...I'm sure he had a Blondie wife among the 700 he had or the 300 concubines!
