Embrace the Sillies
Okay, so the economy's in the crapper, we've got soldiers stuck in Iraq, and the CW just canceled Reaper. Sometimes it seems like there is not light at the end of the tunnel.
I urge you to let loose! And to this you're probably saying, "But, Hamsterkitten, I get drunk every day. How much more loose can I be?" Okay, that is a good point, but I'm talking about the non alcohol or drug induced letting loose. Stand up, shake it out. Get silly! Don't be so uptight all the time.
Yes, life hands you lemons. That's how it goes. Why not paint faces on those lemons, buckle them into your car and pretend they're people? Have a 3 hour conversation about how ridiculous it is for soap operas to think that people can get shot 4 times, fall out of an airplane, have 10 miscarriages and still be okay.
Watch in fascination as your children look at you funny when you jump on the floor and start rolling around like you're on fire. They'll love it! Let them jump on you, pretend to be cookie monster and break out of your mold for once.
Getting old is not pleasant, but isn't it great when you can retain your youth by being carefree and realizing the world is not always a big bad place? I'm guessing if you're reading MY blog, you're not completely opposed to a little silliness.
