7 REALLY FUN THINGS TO DO WHILE STUCK AT HOME

 

 

  • Think outside the breadbox. Don’t just bake bread or break bread – why not cake the bread?  Forget the flour and eggs.  Jack up the brown sugar, molasses, vanilla extract and cinnamon. Yum.

  • Study The Kama Sutra.  Surprise your spouse with a pop quiz.

 

  • Live-stream your cat’s DIY pedicure. Document his lack of cooperation and that unmistakable disdain in his eyes. Beware a cat scorned. Remember – there’s a big, fat “ME” in “MEOW.”

  • Host a Virtual Pity Party. Drown yourself in cheap wine and sad clown music. Indulge.

 

  • Get pregnant or get another dog. Or both. The more the merrier. Misery loves company.

 

  • Learn How To Make People Laugh!

 

“Apart from paracetamol, laughter is still the best medicine. If you’ve always dreamed of performing at your local stand-up night, now’s the ideal time to hone those gags. Chicago’s legendary Second City Training Center may be closed, but it’s offering an expanded series of classes online covering everything from performing voiceovers to writing for TV. Most affordable, though, are its $25 drop-in improv and stand-up classes. Sign up and give those one-liners a test run.”

FEEL GOOD TIP: You Haven’t Got Time for the Pain

Run-of-the-mill pain, angst, misery – it’s all relative.

One poor schlub’s kidney stone is someone else’s stubbed toe.

Many people claim to be miserable. On a scale of 1 to 10, how much do you hurt?

I Feel Your Pain: Dead or Alive

Can life be devoid of pain?

TheScream

I saw a billboard recently that advertised “TOTAL Sleep Dentistry.”

On it was a hot, young blonde (is there any other kind in L.A.?)

She was wearing an itsy bitsy red polka dot bikini (or was it a thong with Spandex pasties?) and a glistening smile.

Her blinding whites sparkled in a movie star kind of way – as if  touched – not from a toothbrush, but by Tinker Bell’s magic wand.

The message went on to promise… […]

Boob Job: Feel The Pain

21 Jun

 

Had a boob job yesterday.

BarbBestHumor

Actually… it was a mammogram from hell*

This mammogram was a slammogram.

A grand slammo.

Ladies… you know the drill.

Your bountiful breasts are slammed onto a cold glass panel (oddly similar to a shelf in your refrigerator), then pressed mercilessly ’til your eyes water or your ears bleed (whichever comes first).

Then the technician runs to her safe place across the room and shouts, “Don’t breathe.”

(“Honey… no problem. I stopped breathing with the first cringing slam.”)

Women… feel our pain!

Forget ’bout water boarding. A grueling slammo on private parts will make grown men squeal like rats.

*Disclaimer: Truly hellish is “Lumps, cysts, malignancies are suspected and/or found.”

* Don’t forget to schedule your annual mammogram.

* Do jokes need warning labels and legal disclaimers now?

Gratitude With An Attitude

Like many, I am acutely aware of being grateful – health, family, friends, pets, laughter, chocolate, caffeine, a working internet connection – are obviously priceless.

 

In honor of the whole “Give Thanks” thing… I’ve been keeping a Gratitude Journal… 7 Notes:

 

* Am grateful that a migraine attack only lasts a day.

 

* Thankful Aunt Carrie puts a truckload of bourbon in the yam soufflé.  Can you say “Pass the potatoes!” fast five times… fast enough? […]

PAIN. Can’t live with it, can’t live without it.

Pain, of course, is entirely relative.

PAIN – THE NOUN

1) A feeling of marked discomfort, a distressing sensation in a particular part of the body: “She has severe pains in her arse, most probably due to sitting at the computer/at work/in the car all day.”

“Jury duty can be quite a pain in the neck.”

“Her boss gives her the most excruciating pain in her head and eyeballs.”

2) Mental suffering or distress : “During the holidays, I am plagued by the pain of listening politely to relatives pontificate on politics, religion, and reality TV.” […]

Oh Health: A Pop Quiz

28 May

TRUE or FALSE:

 

1. It’s not good to eat foods you can’t pronounce. So avoid stuff like shitakes, bok choy, radicchio, and quinoa. Especially quinoa.

 

2. A banana makes a perfectly fine antacid.  Peel first.  Feel free to add ice cream, chopped nuts, and a cherry on top.

 

3. Doctors suggest you sniff rosemary to boost your memory and sharpen your test-taking skills. However, ask Rosemary first. “No” means “No!” […]

I have seen what a laugh can do. It can transform almost unbearable tears into something bearable, even hopeful. — Bob Hope

Before you look down your nose on a clown nose…

It’s important to realize that therapeutic humor is a valuable tool to help others.

Think of those who battle cancer and chronic illness, nurse patients with spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injury, comfort the dying, care for a parent with Alzheimer’s, cope with the death of a son in a car accident, deal with the legacy of alcoholic parents, struggle with the aftermath of rape, miscarriages, teenage suicide.  ARRGH!   Unfortunately, “Pain and Suffering” is a reality show playing in all of our neighborhoods.

Hard to believe, but I’m told some people stress out over a lost earring (not me!) or a missed plane (never!) or (God forbid!) a lousy internet connection. (Can you hear me? Is this working?)

YOU too can experience the transformative power of humor.

AATH is The Association for Applied & Therapeutic Humor – It is THE home for humor and laughter professionals. Please check them out!

I support AATH – YOU can, too!
