Humor: Without It...Life Can Be Boring

First of all, EVERYONE is a comedian. The difference is most of us don't get paid being one. But in this community you get a chance to make people LAUGH.

About a year ago I started creating a journal. But this journal was not what you may think. It contained a continuous array of thoughts (mostly humorous) that most of us have, but rarely write down on paper etc.. It didn't matter what the subject was, it was just about any thought I had that was created by what I saw or heard that struck me to be somewhat odd or funny. I know that many of you have had those thoughts or know a funny incident that you can't forget. Therefore, let me and others hear about those 'hidden' thoughts. I dare you to make me and others LAUGH.

  1. Hi, I think that is a great idea! Here's the first joke:

    A woman told her friend, “I feel like my body has gotten totally out of shape, so I got my doctor’s permission to join a fitness club and start exercising.” She said, “So, I decided to take an aerobics class for seniors. I bent, twisted, gyrated, jumped up and down, and perspired for an hour. But by the time I got my leotards on, the class was already over!” [1]

    1. Great ideas! Thanks for sharing!
      Laughter is the best medicine for sure! My father (age 86) is a PwP. He is entering the last stages of PD and now more dementia. Each day is becoming more difficult for my mother to handle him with help from a care provider and myself. Luckily my father has not lost his sense of humor so this helps balance our days!
      Have a fun and eventful day! Regards, Suzanne, Advocate,

      1. Laughter: I started this week exercising lifting 2 bags used for 10-pound potatoes. After two weeks, I was able to lift them both over my head 10 times. Next, I will add a few potatoes to each bag! Remember, laughter is the best medicine! Marc M., Moderator,

        1. That's a great bit Marc, Thanks!

      2. This is my husband’s favorite story about me. I am very short and struggle with reaching things. One day I climbed on the counter top to reach the cabinet above the fridge. I got what I needed and then couldn’t get down. I just sat on the fridge until my husband got home. He couldn’t figure out where I was. I told him we were playing hide and seek. Eventually he found me and got me down. I still have a silly streak which helps when PD decides to strike. Our goal is to laugh every day. Thea DeStephano Community Team Member
