When Words Fail: Laugh
Proverbs 17:22Â A joyfulÂ heartÂ is goodÂ medicine,Â But a brokenÂ spiritÂ driesÂ up the bones.Â
Words have been failing me lately. Literally. I try to respond in conversation and I can’t bring what I want to say to mind, or I’m talking about cooking and “cat” comes out. Imagery and laughter aside, it is quite frustrating for a wordsmith to be silenced. So, since laughter is good medicine and the kids and I have been creating an abundance of jokes . . . here are a few of my favorites.
Why are suckers always singing? Answer: Because they are covered in rappers.
Why don’t musicians like the police?Â Answer: Because they place you under a-rest. (Daniel original)
What note can a car tire play? Answer:Â B flat
Who gets in trouble more, a football player, or figure skater?Â Answer: A figure skater, because they are always skating on thin ice.
Cultivate laughter, plant it in the lives around you and watch joy grow.
