Do Something Silly Today

So much doom and gloom floating about.

Let's do something lighthearted today.

Yesterday I completely surprised some second grade girls. They were skipping out of the bathroom as I crossed the playground. So I skipped across to meet them. A grownup skipping? They were completely surprised and speechless for a moment, then started smiling and laughing. And we all skipped back to the classroom. It felt good.

So have a silly moment today... and tell me about it.

Laura and I have a silly practice. When we walk across the parking lot from the car to a store, we link arms, monkey walk, and sing out loud, "We're off to see the wizard, the wonderful Wizard of Oz!" And we don't care who's looking.

Skip on!

Today a clerk at Walmart and I laughed that the reason the store was so hot was not because the company was too cheap to turn on the AC but because they wanted everyone have a spa-like sauna experience.

My 12 yr. old daughter and I had a completely immature yet hilarious belly-button poking fight.

Personally...I love skipping and I do it whenever I can! One of my mottos is....if i can't dazzle them with my beauty, then make'em laugh!
All of us here at Kamp Kuroiwa have perfected the "walking down a staircase behind the sofa/wall/fence" action...never fails to crack one of us up!!
