Just In Time: Laughter Class!
Tuesday, November 22, 2011
Listening to my public radio station before going into the dentist's to have my molar pulled what should come up but Jonathan Groubert's Radio Netherland's "The State We're In." Today's show featured: "Tita Begashaw loves to laugh. In fact, she teaches people how to laugh till their sides ache."
This, she does despite (or perhaps because?) tragedy which struck within her family:
Unfortunately I don't believe the entire interview is here, because I listened to it for around 15 mins. and this is only 5 mins. long. I "believe" the entire show may be at this link:
My first reaction was skepticism. A class? On laughing? But oh my...who could resist? What a great belly laugh and "lightening up" before heading into the dentist! Going to have to hang onto this story to replay on those days when I'm just taking myself and life all too seriously!
The molar is gone. Had to bust it into a few pieces as she nearly had to put her foot on my jaw to yank it out in one piece...lol! Sadly, no strenuous activities so that the socket can heal. Bye-bye workout and dancing. So I'm home and lying low.
I should have planned ahead and gotten my cardio in this morning...grrr! At least I did my strength training yesterday.
I'm already eying the forecast for Friday...mid-50's and sunny! What better way to spend "Buy Nothing Day" ( youtu.be/1uK0_jwyh_0
) than to light out onto the open roads with my bike? I've already sent an invite out to my bike club to see if there might be any takers to join me.
Going to have a quiet Thanksgiving here, being careful not to have too much of or the wrong kinds of foods on hand.
Have a healthy, happy Thanksgiving everyone!
