Laughter as Brain Injury Medicine #2
One evening our doorbell rang. It was nice to have someone stop by briefly and unexpectedly. As we sat and visited for a little while, the doorbell rang again. Wow, I thought how wonderful to have some cheerful and loving friends come by. Again, the doorbell rang. Then again and again.
It was at that point the surprise was on us. I was the instigator of this gathering and never even knew it. I invited everyone over and didn’t remember I even asked anyone! So, we pulled food out of the freezer and enjoyed our get-together.
Bet anyone couldn’t pull that off unless they have a brain injury! So, this is as stress-free of a gathering that one could have. It’s like having your own surprise party, and truly being surprised! We just enjoyed everyone with a no muss-no fuss attitude.
Moral of the story: I planned the party, and I was truly surprised. It actually is possible to plan your own surprise party! This is the true way of having stress-free party. This type of situation occurs frequently with survivors of brain injury.
