“Laughter is carbonated holiness.” — Anne Lamott

Covering Up Your Emotions May Actually be Detrimental | 2020-03-18 | ADAPT  Automotive

On a lighter note…

Back in 2012, I wrote this:

The day I can look back and read one of my published posts, find a mistake, and correct it without contorting my face, circumnavigating expletives and licking the scratch on my tender ego is the day I’ve reached transforming union with God.

I have changed that based on what I have learned since then:

The day I can look back and read one of my published posts, find a mistake, and correct it as I contort my face, circumnavigate expletives and lick the scratch on my tender ego, amid bursts of hearty laughter, is the day I’ve reached transforming union with God.

I’ll be sure to let you know when that day comes. Hint, R.I.P.

  4. When I learned to laugh at myself, raucously and often, life became so much easier for me and (especially) for all of those “potential” friends I meet ever day. Thanks, my dear friend. This one, like so many others you post, really hit home!

    Theresa and Ryan: Awesome. Brilliantly humorous use of homophones in your comment. Kudos! Love it!

    Peace and blessings to all!

  5. BTW, “Weird Al” has always appealed to me in his “strange but true” style of message in his music. This one included in your well-timed post, Bro Tom, is spot on. I am a fan of language, cringing at the abuse and misuse of the English language. Or as Professor ‘enry ‘iggins says re Eliza Doolittle in the “My Fair Lady” tune, “Why Can’t the English Learn to Speak”, One of my all-time favorite scenes in theater.

    PROFESSOR HIGGINS: “Look at her, a prisoner of the gutter, Condemned by every syllable she utters. By right she should be taken out and hung, For the cold-blooded murder of the English tongue!” See the videos below:

    IMHO, particularly egregious in today’s world, it’s the use and misuse of the pronoun, “myself”.

    https://www.grammar-monster.com/lessons/me_myself.htm#:~:text=The%20word%20%22myself%22%20is%20a%20pronoun.%20It%20can,They%27re%20easier%20to%20understand%20than%20you%20might%20think.

    IMHO, both are bits of carbonated holiness.

  6. Awesome! Love the “correct” and clever use of the word. Huge smile!
