Laughter is better than medicine

August 8, 2010

Some people say that laughter is the best medicine.  I don’t agree.  Laughter is simply the best.  In my world, there is nothing better than sitting with friends, finding a funny notion and then running with it until we are figuratively peeing in our pants.  But I can also do this alone.  For example, I was sitting at Peet’s coffee last week, minding my own business (sort of) when I overheard a conversation about cemeteries.  OK, I know some of you are thinking, “what’s funny about cemeteries?”  Well, let me tell you.  Apparently they are filling up!  So much so that cemetery salesmen are urging a clever money making scheme.  Why in the world do you need two plots?  Just bury mom on top of dad and sell the other plot!  Genius.  I did not make this up; I simply overheard it at Peet’s.  Now, why stop there?  Dig deep.  Really deep.  Uncle Jim and Aunt Yolanda can squeeze in there.  A young, healthy person with a large enough family could start a side business.  So please, if you are out there, struggling in this economy, take heart.  Go to the cemetery.  Pay a visit to grandpa, and let him know company’s comin’!
