I listened in horror to the BBC feed coming into work at 3:30 a.m. this morning as they reported on what appears to be terror attacks in Brussels. My heart goes out to all those impacted by these deadly attacks. May God help. Amen.
Thinking about our cool down you have to love the Gulf Coast contrast. Record heat at near 90 last week and near freezing this week. I cast my vote for the lower temps but to each his or her own. Good Tuesday morning and welcome here on this March 22, 2016. I heard a fellow tell a joke the other day where he was sadly recounting how his uncle had been given only six months to live by his doctor. His uncle told the doctor that he was sorry but given that short period he would likely not be able to pay the doctor what he was owed. The doctor promptly gave him another six months. I thought that was funny. You might not. We all are made to laugh by different things. I see it all the time. The wife and I see the same gag on TV. She thinks it is hilarious and I can hardly manage a smile. Different. I saw some advice that I thought was humorous, "If you see someone crying don't ask if it's because of their haircut." Then we have the category that we all love: Poetic Justice. One fellow shared a real experience he recently had. "The fellow who came close to running over me, grabbed the parking spot, and made an obscene gesture towards me, well, he was just ushered into my office for his job interview." The little ditties that feature wordplay can also be amusing. "What do you call a snobbish criminal going down the stairs?" "I give up." "A condescending con descending." One last one for my diabetic brothers and sisters: "Give up carbs? Over my bread body." Some pretty cheesy stuff to get our day started but let's move on and hope for something better. Me too!
