I woke up this morning – Valentine’s Day – still dark outside viewing a downtown office building draped over the top with a large strip of pink. It started my day laughing.
As I’m doing my morning exercises, something triggers the memory of a friend recently coming to visit on his birthday, piece of cake in hand, plopping himself down at my kitchen table, requesting a candle and a match, plopping them into his celebratory slice of cake and demanding that I sing “Happy Birthday” to him. Ha-ha-ha!!!!!! Too funny! It’s his birthday ritual not to be denied.
Find humor in life. It’s everywhere if you’re open to it.

I've been performing my morning laughter ritual slightly differently lately. Instead of going through the laughter exercises, I conjure up some very funny stories from my life:
· * Adele, the 80-something ex-nun in our writing class, who loved to shock, using the f-word, causing Bill, the sweet 80-something ex-newspaper reporter, to gasp slightly and question his ears with a “what?” causing the ex-nun to gleefully repeat her f-word….well you had to be there to get how hysterical this repartee was.
· *My friend’s 5 year old daughter spontaneously, and for no clear reason, shouting “Barbie Win!!!” with fist pumped in the air for emphasis.
* * Or Rex doing his James Brown imitation!!!
Retrieving memories, that kept me howling then, are keeping me howling now.

My bank teller today is one bright spirit and she makes the whole place shine with the light of her laughter. I tell her she has the best laugh. She tells me, what unfortunately I've heard too many times before, "Oh but it's gotten me into trouble". Why is laughter considered so unprofessional? I tell her, "Don't ever let anyone stifle your laughter - it's beautiful".
More bank tellers need to laugh. It would make the world that much brighter.
I leave with a huge smile and a brighter spirit.
