Laughter is better than medicine
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’!
