Today I share ONE joke.
Often in life when we are facing challenging times we use humour to counterbalance the stress of the situation and avoid being upset all the time.
|Too many of these?|
Friday was when I discovered the culprit - when it in fact decided to break.
I can cope, I thought, it is not painful...
Yeah, weekend! Woohoo! Toothache - boohoo!
So this is where I was reminded of a pretty poor joke that I will now share with you:
Question: When is the best time to go to the dentist?Get it?
Answer: 2:30 (tooth'urty)
Well, the big thing about jokes is that they require the intellect to actually get the punchline - and do we all get it? Here's the issue, not getting it does not mean that we are less intelligent than those who do get it, it only means that our minds may not be focused on the track of the joke and so what.
That thought alone would have me howling - never mind the joke, life is what's really great and fun!
Good jokes depend on your sense of humour and essentially 'sense of humour' is defined as the following in the Unabridged Dictionary:
the faculty of perceiving and appreciating the humorousMany people come to the Laughter Club telling they don't have a great sense of humour but that is great news because Laughter Yoga does not require humour!
And just to recap, when you laugh you develop your sense of humour and start seeing the funny side of more situations and things in life, a really helpful and useful tool in this day and age where things seem to be more serious than ever.
So reminding you and myself...
Live well - love much - laughter often!
