Laughter - the Drano of Life

Interesting, I was drawing my journal page and I wrote the word laughter - going downward as if going down the drain.

A saying that is in the book - Laughter is the Best Medicine. I would like to add - laughter cleans out clogs.

Right after reading the chapter - I picked up an antique newspaper and saw this joke.

Driving Too Slow

A state trooper spied a car puttering along at 22 MPH. So he turned on his lights and pulled the driver over.

Approaching the car, he noticed that five old ladies were inside, and they looked wide-eyed and terribly pale.

The driver pleaded with him " Officer, I don't understand, I was doing exactly the speed limit! What seems to be the problem?" "Ma'am," the officer replies, " You weren't speeding, but driving slower than the speed limit can also be dangerous."

" I beg to differ, sir, I was doing the speed limit exactly: twenty-two mile an hour!" the old woman said. The State Police officer, chuckling, explained to her that "22" was the route number, not the speed limit. A bit embarrassed, the woman grinned and thanked the officer for pointing out her error.

"But before I let you go, Ma'am, I have to ask..... Is everyone in this car ok? These women seem awfully shaken," the officer asked.

"Oh, they'll be all right in a minute officer. We just got off Route 119."

So, let's all increase our LPD. Use laughter as the Drano of life - when life gets to us... AND having increased our LPD maybe life will not get to us - so much.

That was a great funny! Thanks for sharing! I do like the idea of laughter as the best medicine a little better than laughter as draino...glad you mentioned it. :)
