• Even if it's not, it tastes better than that stuff in the bottle.

      Wise words!
  • It sure can help in many instances.
  • Yes. But there is a saying that, when you laugh too much, you cry later?
    • Linda Joy
      Crying can be cathartic as well, if needed.
    • Zara Zoey
      Yeah, I believe, only if your heart does not hurt.
  • No, penicillin usually works better. Laughing about your infection doesn't make it go away.

The magazine suggests that to help put yourself in the right mood, you should smile at yourself, your mate, and your children first thing in the morning. “Learn to laugh at yourself,” it adds. “Try to find the good side of things even in difficult circumstances.”

"Many years ago, realizing our advanced age, we figured out the best time to do it was when the church bells would start to ring. It was just the right rhythm. Nice and slow and even. Nothing too strenuous, simply in on the Ding and out on the Dong." She paused, wiped away a tear and then continued, "And if that damned ice cream truck hadn't come along, he'd still be alive today!"
  • Yes it is along with a dashing man in a suit,
  • No. Which is why we send sick people to hospitals, not comedy clubs.
