Why am I thinking about this? Yesterday, as I am downstairs working on my book, I get a phone call. I look down at it, my eyebrow raises (or is that rose) and I see that my teenage daughter Deavan is calling me, which I find odd because I know she is upstairs.
I answer the phone, thinking perhaps she doesn't know I am home because I am being so quiet. "You know Deavan I am right downstairs."
"Oh I know you are home." She said.
"So why are you calling me, you know you are taking laziness to a new level when you call me from upstairs."
She responds: "I want to tell you a story."
"Okay." I said and leaned back in my seat, thinking it odd she is doing this, but who am I to deny hearing a story.
"So I am in here, taking a wonderful shower and suddenly the water blast out heat, I shout a little, but the water turns back, then low and behold the shower turns cold. Back and forth the water burns me then freezes me."
And what do I do when she said this, I burst out into laughter, I really don't know why because its not like I want her to suffer, but it was kind of funny, because I had been doing laundry, each time the cycle changed the water temperature changed.
"Sorry." I laugh, hang up the phone and turn off the laundry.
Why do we laugh? Well if someone is not seriously hurt I suppose its because it is crazy how life can throw us a curve ball and what better way to handle stress than to laugh it off. I enjoy watching a funny movie and laughing seems to keep us young, at least in spirit.
Not to mention that hey...she is a teenager and sometimes teenagers are a bit hard to deal with, and as I don't spank, it was a little funny...I know its a bit sadistic, but all in good fun.
Another fun thing to do: when your partner is taking a shower...sneak in the bathroom and dump cold water in...its a riot. :)
Today's thought: Life is stressful, sometimes we need a little release. We all fight the good fight and try to open peoples mind to ideas and thoughts. Sometimes it is hard to remain strong all the time, we must never forget to take a break....laugh a little, love a lot, and be kind to others.
