While hurt people revel in hurting people I believe in healing people and keeping them well. And what brings healing like laughter? Enjoy!
In the famed words of Charles Dickens’ Ebenezer Scrooge, “It is a fair, even-handed, noble adjustment of things, that while there is infection in disease and sorrow, there is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humor.”
I hope to spread some here in a new installment (est. 4.16.20) of things that crack me up called, THE FUNNIES. Here is a spoonful of sugar for whatever ails you.
Did you know today is National Beautician’s Day?
Well, if you didn’t know, now you know. Today is “Go Get Your Hair ‘Did’ Day.” Your hair has likely been crying out from the crown of your head – help! Thank God, now that many cities are open for business again, you can celebrate this day by getting your ends trimmed, your greys dyed, and your roots pressed, relaxed, or conditioned. Whatever treatments you choose, this is the national day to see your beautician so go get that “do” done.
Today is also National Chocolate Pudding Day. And when I think of chocolate pudding, I can’t help but think of Bill Cosby, the best TV dad ever so far. For someone of my age and culture, he brought laughter into our homes and provided resources for many black college students, all things that make me HAPPY!
Quick Question? Is this national confession day? I keep hearing people say, “I da ho.” (Coronavirus joke).
Over the weekend, feel free to celebrate –
On Saturday: Pineapple Day, for the fruit that makes smoothies tastier while also relieving pain; Sunglasses Day and National Orange Blossom Day – the state flower of Florida.
Sunday is Ceviche Day and National Paul Bunyan Day, which surprised me as much as National Axe Day when I shared in a previous edition of The Funnies. But most importantly, June 28 is HAPPY ❤️ HEARTS HUGS DAY. (Sending virtual hugs are fun too).
Lastly, I’d like to invite you to scroll through some of the best songs for hard times.
Do you know of a song we should all be singing now? Please share below.
UNTIL NEXT TIME…
🌸 STAY HAPPY! BE BLESSED 🦋
