Sharing humor and laughter experiences from those who deal with thinking, memory, and communication problems. I’ve had some unique stories shared with me after starting the laughter portion on this blog and will share a few of them today. I also will encourage others to send any of their situations and funny stories so we can post them on Wednesdays. Let’s laugh together, it’s so healing and improves ones health.
Where did all the dandelions go?
My husband is 70 and in stage 2 Alzheimers. His most recent “funny incident” was when he was trying to help me rid our backyard of fuzzy headed dandelions. I showed him one day how to put his hand over the entire fuzzy head to keep the seeds from escaping when he picked the stem.
He forgot that ~ but remembered the next day that he needed to pull dandelions from the lawn. He showed me a fistful of dandelion stems with no heads, and proudly reported that he had “kicked” all the seeds off the heads before he pulled the stems. Sigh. Hope that brought a smile to you.
There will be plenty of dandelions to pick next year, the seeds were just planted!
Red light, green light? Color of the traffic lights?
My mother was about to run a red light and I started yelling, “It’s black!, It’s Black!”…..why? I have no idea. Amazing that she actually stopped. But after that we laughed about the black street lights in that town.
Flash Gordon movie
|We were watching an old Flash Gordon movie the other day…no subtitles. Very hard for me…but it was funny. I kept asking strange questions like one point they were going to use some kind of ray gun on the bad guys…a multi ray…or something like that….
I heard Multi-grain, and asked, What are they doing with multi-grains? Everyone laughed. After that every time they used that ray, someone would say…they are beating them with Multi-grain! Really it was so funny. I just laughed and laughed. There were other times during that movie I heard strange things but that’s the one I really remember.
I keep thinking I need to keep a little book about “What I thought He said”….I miss hear my husband so often.anyone with a chronic illness could be helped if they learn to laugh about many of their challenges.
Another day to have laughed at the silly things that happen in life!
