I know I’m supposed to post a weekly blog, but this week being the gong show it is it just isn’t happening. Therefore, I leave you with some humour laced with a spice of wisdom.

  1. Take some time for yourself. Try not to do this while stopped at a green light.
  2. Treat people with respect. It’s amusing the amount of chaos and confusion this can cause.
  3. Dip your fingers into the fount at your local Catholic church and scream, “AHHH!!! IT BURNS!!”
  4. Go to Burger King and insist that “your way” is that they serve you while singing the McDonald’s ad.
  5. Buy or bake a cheesecake and top it with Pop Rocks.
  6. Do a striptease for your spouse or partner just to feel sexy. This is best done at home, but if you go to their work it’ll make for an interesting surprise.
  7. Go to your local humane shelter to play with the animals for a while. Far cheaper and more effective than any therapy.
  8. Ask your kids to tell you a story. Write the story down verbatim. Post it to your Facebook. (This works well with any child. Age is not important although the younger ones do have a freer imagination.)
  9. Find the song you loved the most when you were 16 years old. Download it and dance to it in your living room.
  10. Help a stranger. Give a smile. Say thanks.

That’s it for this week, folks. Stay tuned for the Pet of the Week.
