When It's Good It's Very Very Good

Recently I was in a bit of a funk...even listed "very cranky" as my mood.

Then Tasmin came along and "played" with me here...even got me to write a story.

So thank you Tasmin and all my other friends here who came out to play.

I have no idea why it works so well but playing on EP can lift me so damn high....nothing in my real life has changed...I still have the same issues and challenges but now my mood is "mischievous"...."cranky " has hit the road...and that's a very good thing!

Hurry back Frito!!!

Yes I agree Tgilly but for me it's also the camraderie and the fun just balances out what's not so much fun in our lives....we can all be very serious here and share those feeling too (and I have) but when we get a little goofy it honestly feels like I'm a kid in a playground....thanks for "getting: it. :)

love this story, everyones on a high now, and i'm sitting here with a silly grin on my face. There sure is something about EP that lifts the mood, maybe it's cause we can just be ourselves without the fear of looking like a fool cause no one can see us?

Thanks LV...it's always good to *see* you! :)

I know exactly what you mean.<br />
<br />
I just read some stories, specially yours, and I am happy.

So true Paco....I'm so appreciative of the good friends I have here and you are one of them...thanks. :)

I agree Frito, EP can be a real uplifting experience due to the high quality of people in a circle of friends. Your one of them. <br />

Yay to all my friends Fromnowon! :)

It does really help to come on here....I had no plans to write this Tasmin but this morning I realized my mood was greatly lifted the other day just by some fun you helped start.<br />
I hope some of your exhaustion and anxiety can be lifted soon and thank you for being such a good sport! xx

Oooooooooooooooooooooooooh!I just found this .. <br />
Thank you frito xx<br />
I have been feeling very anxious and exhausted recently and it really does help coming on here. Sometimes to discuss serious issues and share stories but sometimes just to be plain silly and have a laugh.As long as it is with like minded people it feels good to have a bit of fun and a break from often very serious and non laughing issues at home or work.

Yay Tasmin! Yay all my playful friends here, including you! Haha "cranky to swanky" now that's quite a trip and I can't see the word swanky without thinking about that cute pig avatar with the swanky pearls! :)

Yep Datura...just how do they do it? It's such a gift and I sure do enjoy it...glad you do too.:D

Your story is so true, Frito! Playing on EP with fun stories can really lift my spirits, too. And Tasmin is a pro at finding fun! Those Brits! Gotta love 'em.

Indeed! Thanks Salar! :D

The value of friends , a wealth indeed ....

*huge grin*

Me too!<br />
Not at all corny.

Haha three cheers for Tasmin...and you too Juan....I know folks may feel this is "corny" but I have benefited so much from sharing in the fun and good humor here on EP.:)

Tasmin is really good at that, isn't she?<br />
Three cheers for Tasmin.<br />
<br />
You are one to lift others' spirits as well, Frito.<br />
So, three cheers for you too.
