TICKLING MY FUNNY BONE

If you have followed my blogs or read at least three you have probably surmised that I am a pretty serious guy. I would think I was just born that way, although as a kid play ruled my life. My father died when I was 18 and everything shifted to serious and somber. I switched from comic books to important books in a microsecond of time.

I have made great strides in this and soon there will be an article on my web site I just finished called, Taking Better Care of You: I'm Not A Robot....Anymore. It is not a bad read if I do say so myself.

Being serious, however, it is not easy to cause me to laugh out loud (currently referred to as LOL). I appreciate good natured and effective humor but so many jokes are just not that funny. A book I just downloaded on my Kindle (see yesterday's blog) has me laughing till I cry. It is written by Miamiite (are there really 2 i's in that word?)Dave Barry. It is called, "I'll Mature When I'm Dead." The title drew me to it.

In it he essays about men and women and raising kids and visiting Miami as well as owning a dog. It is everyday life through the lens of a really funny guy. Laughing is healing so we are told. If that is truly the case then this book can cure you of whatever you are suffering. And, if it doesn't cure you it will sure distract you from the pains from which you experience.

Read it and weep happy tears of hilarity. Enter Dave's world and you will exit cleansed, refreshed, energized and happier. I am stopping here as I need to read another chapter.

Bye For Now,

Bill

  1. Always love a good humorous book: I happen to think that you are very funny; even in the face of not so funny situations. I am grateful your blogging again and am looking forward to your new article and the revitalized, renewed you.
