“Wait a minute.  Just let me stash these groceries away and then I will come in there.”  Molly began emptying the grocery sacks.

Jake was in the office and he hollered back to her, “Okay honey.  This is just so funny you have to see it.”

Molly put the last of the groceries into the cupboard and began to head out of the kitchen when her phone rang.  “Hello?”

“Is this Molly Jensen?” the voice on the other end asked.

“Yes, this is.”

“This is Phyllis from Com-Tech Services, your computer is ready to be picked up.”

Molly thought to herself, why couldn’t they have called before I got home?  “Alright, I will swing in this afternoon to pick it up.”  She hung up the phone and sighed.  Heading towards the office she said, “Jake I have to run out again, the computer is ready.  Want to come with?”

“No thanks.  I am on a roll with clearing out my email, I hate to stop now,” Jake said as he opened a window on the computer.  “This is what I wanted to show you Molly.”

My fault

“I think this would be great for John in California… get him back for all those horrible tornado and blizzard jokes he sends us.”

Molly chuckled a little and said, “That is really bad… the way he loves puns though, you’re right it would be perfect for him.”

A to Z Challenge – Laughter

#AtoZChallenge 2019 Tenth Anniversary badge

L is for laughter

*What color is the wind? Blew

Sometimes you just have to laugh.  Some days it is a matter of laughing so you don’t cry.  I do my best to try to spread laughter.  I do a letter of sorts for my therapist and I always have at least one joke or pun included.  I follow a couple of pun pages on Facebook and I get a daily email for my Pun of the Day.

*I’m friends with 25 letters of the alphabet… I don’t know Y.

My Dad was a big influence on my humor.  I remember growing up watching several different comedies on TV.  He would joke with us almost daily.  He even introduced me to a series of books from Piers Anthony about a place called Xanth.  Those books were full of puns.

*I ordered a chicken and an egg on Amazon.  I’ll let you know.

So try to find some laughter where ever you can.  They say a smile requires only about 1/2 of the muscles that a frown takes… conserve energy today LAUGH!

*Why can’t you hear a pterodactyl in the bathroom? Because it has a silent pee.
