I have to say that I love to laugh! There is nothing like it, even when you feel terrible. I get a lot of laughs from my husband, who has a really dry sense of humor. I love to be around my two boys because they have something witty, or weird to make me laugh just about anytime. But, if I had to say there is one person I can absolutely depend on for a laugh anytime, it’s my Dad. He has the greatest funny stories, and jokes ever. I have had to have a lot of surgeries, and medical things done in the past few years. I call my Dad my comedic backup because when he comes with me, we always have a lot of laughs. Yes, even in the OR waiting room, or pre op! I had to have a serious surgery about 9 years ago, and my Dad, and hubby came with me. It was snowing, with about an inch of ice under it, and a normally one hour drive, took 3 hours. We arrived shaken but not stirred, and settled in to wait on my surgery time. Daddy started telling his jokes and stories and before very long, hubs and I were nearly rolling. You wouldn’t believe the dirty looks we got! People just could not understand. It was as if they thought, “How DARE we be having a good time in the hospital!!” I understand that hospitals can be scary places. Surgery itself is not fun. Neither is being in pain. But , I want people to realize something. That even though we are having surgery , or in pain, or just going through something terrible, laughter can be a lot of fun. It will take your mind off of what you are going through. So, next time you find yourself in between a rock and a hard place, don’t forget to find the funny. It might do you good!
