Thank you for visiting me at my blog. And even more thanks if you make a comment! When I wrote that last post I wasn't sure if I should publish it. I was afraid you all might think I was an unhappy, mean spirited woman. Apparently I struck a nerve! At least with some of you. Let me just make a little addendum and say that I could not get through life without a sense of humor. There are a few other necessities, such as faith in God, good friends, Diet Coke and chocolate, but really, if you can't laugh, and mostly if you can't laugh at yourself, well, how would one survive?
I do have a sarcastic streak in me as well, and that sometimes gets me into trouble. Over the years I have tried to bridle my tongue. I tell myself, "If I just keep my mouth shut, I won't say anything stupid"! Sometimes it even works. I come from a family of five children and parents who were extroverts. We had to be loud to be heard! There was a lot of competition for attention. To this day my 83 year old father is the life of any party and a joy to be around. He still tells stupid jokes and I still think he is funny!
Again, I do appreciate your comments. It is fun to have "imaginary friends" out there!
