Anyone Want To Go Shopping With Me?
My daughter and I love being together. We talk, we cry, share our thoughts, dreams and most of all laugh. Unfortunately, most of it is at my expense! Lol… Over the past five years since I have been mostly homebound due to chronic illness, the Lord has been teaching me some great lessons about how to Live Simply, Laugh Often, and Love Deeply. I can find humor in almost any situation.
About a month ago Heather and I went to Super Wal Mart. As most of you know it is a very large store where one could get tired after shopping 2 ½ hours; even in one of those riding carts! Towards the end of our shopping excursion we went over to the deli department. As we were waiting our turn to place our order, I had noticed how the clerks behind the counter had surgical looking caps over their head, surgical gown, and protective gloves. Now remember, I am exhausted after 2 ½ hours of fun shopping, but for some reason I had a strange thought come to my mind. I do not know why this thought popped into my mind, (as one with ADD my mind races from one thought to another), before I knew it my thought blurted right out of my mouth. Some around me gave me a very strange look; while others started to laugh. My daughter looked at me in total amazement along with shock and embarrassment, but it wasn’t long before she was laughing uncontrollably. I was so embarrassed but I couldn’t stop laughing too. Unaware of what was making everyone laugh, the clerk from behind the counter looked at everyone and pointed to me and said, “I’ll have what she’s having!” Everyone in the deli department burst into laughter! By now Heather and I were laughing so hard we both had to pee and couldn’t wait to place our order!
What did I say that made my daughter so embarrassed and filled the deli department with great laughter?
“I wonder if the deli clerks wear anything in a WalMart at a nudist community? “
Yes, go ahead and laugh. As I wrote on the “About Me” column of this blog, I hope to encourage, uplift, and at times amuse. Since laughter is a great medicine… You should feel better now.
Do you have a funny to share?
