I must admit laughter lightens our souls and brightens each day! We can laugh at ourselves or laugh with others, either way it increases the “feel good” hormones in the brain. It seems like people have been laughing at all the goofy things I’ve been doing over the years, and now I’m observing all the situations around me. Guess what? It’s not just me!
My husband and I pulled in to the driveway. He informed me that my garage door opener could not be reprogrammed to work in my car. Hence, the garage door opener is not working from the car. Oh, the conveniences of technology. Our expectations that everything should always work!
He asked if I had keys to the house? First, I thought why wouldn’t I have keys to my house? I’m sure he meant to ask if I had the keys to the house on me. I handed him the keys and told him it was the purple lighted key. He said their were no purple keys. I had only one purple lighted key on my key chain.
He handed me the keys to show him which one was purple! Well, that wasn’t a difficult task. It’s probably the easiest thing I’ve been asked recently. I handed him back the keys with the only purple key! He responded with a totally confused look!
I knew I didn’t take it off my keyring. Why would I? After that discussion he unlocked the door. He left that door open and came back to the car and sat in the driver’s seat. I’m sitting in the passenger seat!
I waited to see what his next move was. We waited, and waited, and waited! Ha, now try silence for a while when you know what is happening. I think he was waiting for the overhead garage door to magically open! I know he meant to open it up when he unlocked the garage service door but something distracted him!
So here we sit in the car in our driveway waiting for … I guess waiting for our thoughts? Waiting for a miracle? Waiting for whatever was next to come? Maybe, waiting for “I Dream of Jeanie” to show up!
Eventually, he realized he forgot to open the overhead garage door … we both just laughed! I happily got out and opened the garage door! Now I must ask myself, who is distracted? I could cry because these moments have become much more frequent, but I will laugh and laughing together is even better!
Have you observed behaviors that seemed strange but the fault was always yours? How did you handle the situations?
