Don't Forget Some Humor


So, how’s your April fools day? A month ago, Jim already planned on freaking B at work. He’s been stressing out so much of the sales lately and the fiscal year had started good. He needs to keep up with the sales from last year. Being said that, Jim is determined to give him a prank mail from 2 of our major accounts. A letter that says they’re going to cancel/drop our products (which is a real bummer- knock on the wood). I’m not quiet sure about the idea. I know B would be very devastated with that news. So, I kept the old envelopes and had all the plans rolling. The moment my husband arrived at the office, he gave the envelopes to B. He was so panicked, cussing and depressed. The next minute, he knew it. Oh, he’s so slick and that’s why he got the job!

We all need to add a generous amount of humor in our lives if we have to cope up all the odds. Having a sense of humor is an extraordinary talent. If you can laugh away all your struggles and pains, then you’re golden! Yes, that’s one thing I liked the most about my husband. Although I admit that sometimes they’re way too much. I mean, all the boys at work. I remembered hearing them laughing because B found out the video that I make for some kind of sponsored post few months back. I uploaded it on YouTube and saved it on B’s computer which obviously, I forgot about it. My software doesn’t work at that time. Anyway, my husband (on the phone) was telling me that the video was so embarrassing and worse, it made it to yahoo that day. Geeee, I was so panicked and I could hear B playing the video over and over again while A was laughing so hard. “I didn’t know you believed in alien!” Grrrr. Those guys, hmmmp. I just don’t get sympathy from them. I’m glad if Lu is around then they can’t pick on me too much. Oh well, it’s fun though.

That's great! My sister and her husband ran off and got married on April Fools Day a few years ago, we all thought they were kidding!

Hi Shawie;
You and I have written comments and emails to each other a few times. I am Mel's friend and just read what you wrote about Emily's lupus. What is very weird is that when Mel started blogging, he had 4friends with lupus, and didn't find out until after he found out that I have lupus, and I mentioned it in my profile, and those 3 other people told me they also have it. There is Pia, Emmy Rose (Emily) and oh dear...the moment I want to remember a name, it leaves me. Painfog is frustrating. There is one more blogger friend with lupus in our little circle. If I think of it I'll come back. Its a nasty disease. Thanks for being caring enough to even look it up to see what it is. Few people would care that much.
Bless you,
Sheila

Yes having a good sense of humor helps a lot in coping with everyday stresses. But we must not overdo it since there are people who are quite sensitive and we might inadvertently hurt their feelings. The best way to elicit laughter from friends and acquaintances is to make fun of yourself. Then others will have a good laugh at your own expense. Thanks for the positive post. God bless you always.

Thanks for visiting my post today "Meek and Lowly". You said you feel like you need to be more humble and that surprises me because you seem like a very humble person already....know why? Because our attitude and level of gratitude reflect a great deal how humble we actually are. Thanks for your great example.

BTW You are right about the need for a sense of humor... it reminds me of a quote by Marjorie Hinckley, "The only way to get through life is to laugh your way through it. You either have to laugh or cry. I prefer to laugh."

I had a good April Fools prank... I emailed everybody in my family and told them I was pregnant with my 5th.... They all believed me and congratulated me and all that fun stuff, ya know, it was funny....I was surprised that none of them put it together that it was the first of April. Good times!
