My mother made two intentional jokes in her life. One of them was when she (Texas born) entered into a conversation about something-or-other saying, “Let’s talk about Texas. We weren’t, but let’s —”
For my two sisters and me, that was hilarious, a great and witty tool to bring a conversation right where you wanted it to be, without belligerence or rudeness. (Maybe you won’t think so, but for us, it worked!)
So I’m saying about this week’s photo challenge, “Let’s talk about happiness. We weren’t but let’s —”
Tonight at our current favorite Chinese restaurant, Ginger Garden, this was my fortune. For once, a fortune cookie combined good fortune and good sense. Absolutely, you’d better believe it, your happiness is intimately intertwined with your outlook on life.
Since a good Chinese meal is guaranteed to change my outlook for the better, how fortunate it is that 15 or 20 minutes’ drive east on Route 9 and the world becomes a brighter, happier place. (That’s a chopstick wrapper folded origami style to make a chopstick rest, in case you’re wondering.)
Do you have any sure-fire “fixes” that are guaranteed to change your outlook for the better?
