    I know, here he goes with the cliches again! But seriously, I had discovered long ago that allowing myself to laugh at me, opened the doors to make others laugh also. I can't argue with the fact that laughter is the greatest gift, it makes you live longer, top that!

    I Do It Often!

    I encountered life's most embarrassing moment a few days ago and I've been laughing about it ever since.  You have to laugh at those things you can't do anything about.
