Never a Monty Python fan, but the show came to town and one of my Spfriends let me know it's a terrific show. I got a great deal on the ticket. Well, honestly, I'm still smiling. Great music, great sets and costumes. Wonderful energy. Absurd humor, which is right up my alley. Below are some great lyrics that reminded me that I have spent the last two years in the sad, tearful, griefstricken side of life. Now I'm learning to handle all that, and remembering what I've always done best - laugh and make others laugh (without even trying -smiling).
Before I type the few lines from the song, I want to thank my sparkfriends for their warm, touching responses to my blog yesterday. As usual, kind hearts were very helpful in keeping me reality-based. And, yes, I'm delaying my weigh-in one more day - until tomorrow - so that I can get more exercise in before stepping on that dastardly scale.
Here goes, everyone sing along...
If life seems jolly rotten
There's something you've forgotten
And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing.
When you're feeling in the dumps
Don't be silly chumps
Just purse your lips and whistle-that's the thing.
And always look on the Bright Side of Life.
Just like that new CW song (I don't remember who does it), where his friend is sitting in a bar, rattling off all of his problems. And the singer's refrain, "Sounds like life to me." Yup, that's the boat we're on. So, enjoy the ride, regardless of what's happenin.
Have a happy day, sparkfriends.
