" ...laughable or hilarious through obvious absurdity or incongruity."
At the beginning of every year, I set "intentions" for the New Year ahead - not "resolutions", but rather intention for what I choose. This year's intention was to laugh every single day.
It's the silly little things that make me laugh. The ridiculous, the absurd... and it would appear that the universe has conspired to assist me in this aim (grin)
** although I have no photo to prove it, the image it draws to mind is funny enough: a couple of weeks ago, on a sunday morning, I was driving down a nearby road in Lacey, WA, on my way to Lowe's to buy some poesies, and saw a man walking down the street wearing a full set of inflatable arms (as seen in the second Spiderman movie).. yes... he was dressed up as Dr. Octopus. Ah how I wish I'd had my camera for proof.
** leaving work last week, I walked by some homeless youth, sitting on the sidewalk in front of a coffee house.. and one of them said to me "Can you spare some change for a s*x change operation?" I mean really!
** Buzz lightyear now sits on my kitchen windowsill, reminding me of a time when my niece (then 18) and four of her football player friends were driving in my 1977 convertible VW bug. Buzzlightyear used to sit on the dash - they took a curve a bit fast (ahem) and Buzz went flying out of the car... my neice pulled over and all four of the football payers leaped out of the car screaming "Buzz... Buzz.. where did you go flying off to?" (a pretty hilarious image). And you could almost hear Buzz say "It's not flying, it's falling with style!"
** and last but not least, even Classic Elite free patterns newsletter sent off this photo of the back of a hand knit tie in their most recent email....
need I say more?
Have a good laugh this morning - it makes the day brighter.
