Is Silly a Valid Lifestyle Choice?

I've been reading the e-posted biographies of the alumni of my High School.  I am aghast at the total lack of silly these people have reported.

They are gardening and Vice President of North American Sales..ing.  What is wrong with them?  Do they think that silly is shameful and something to be denied, or are they truly making a statement about the silly lifestyle?

If I were to post, I think I would say that I work for my state government, because they won't let me leave.  I enjoy planning and carrying out elaborate pranks on my teen age son. And in my spare time, I practice my collection of blank looks.

I would explain that my husband's obsession with Dale Earnhardt Jr. is really a part of a larger conspiracy theory against key members of city council, and that I am commissioned by "certain individuals" to "keep an eye on him".

I would tell them proudly that my children can quote all the SNL greats, from Belushi to Fallon.  That alone should really trump their prattling about little Jimmy going to the university of blah with a full scholarship in blah blah blah, right?

So what do you think?  Is silly just as valid a lifestyle (and dare I say parenting) choice as are the boring ones?

All I can say is that silly brings a whole lot more enjoyment in life, than being dull and ordinary ;) Kudos to you, love.
