Laugh.jpgI am watching “Notting Hill” for the hundredth time and laughing, again, at Spike’s t-shirt. If you’ve not seen the movie, it’s a good ‘un and so as not to be a ‘spoiler’, I’ll not elaborate further about Spike or his t-shirt. Just trust me, it’s funny. So is the movie. You see, it’s been a serious few days and I needed a laugh. This morning, it was Lily Tomlin as Ernestine talking to General Motors. If, like me, you watched Laugh In every week all those years ago, you’ll remember her snort. I snort when I laugh. Anywho, I’d not heard this bit before, and it sure hit the bull’s eye of political satire. The show was cutting edge… and cutting the Goliath’s, too. Great stuff.

My wish tonight is that we laugh more. Laughter lowers blood pressure, and increases serotonin. Both wonderful things for the body and mind. I can’t remember when I last laughed enough to start snorting, but plan to make that happen soon. There’s a lot of things going on in a day that requires seriousness. And then there’s the world! It’s a serious place. I think, for tonight, I’ll laugh.

Until tomorrow…
