I’ve been accused on more than one occasion of not being serious. I will say that some of these comments were a bit hurtful to me. You must understand that there is a reason why I have major wrinkles around my eyes: (If anyone knows a great plastic surgeon, please call.) I’m always laughing. I love to laugh! I tend to laugh until I cry! I love to make people laugh or smile! It’s a sickness, I know, but I have refused treatment.
The beauty part of my proclivity? I shall live longer!!! Yes, according to this study, I shall reach 103! (Well, actually, Jiminy Cricket said that, but I thought it sounded good.)
Here is the article: (I think I shamelessly stole this from someone, but I can’t remember who….oh, well) http://medicaldaily.com/news/20120525/10040/personality-gene-longevity-aging.htm
For all of you lazy daisies who won’t read it, I’ll just quote some of it: (my favourite parts, of course!) People who are outgoing, optimistic, easygoing, and have a good sense of humor and a large social network are likely to live longer than others who don’t possess these personality traits, according to new research.
Here’s another one I dig: …when we assessed the personalities of these 243 centenarians, (and they’ve been around the block!) we found qualities that clearly reflect a positive attitude towards life. Most were outgoing, optimistic and easygoing. They considered laughter an important part of life and had a large social network. They expressed emotions openly rather than bottling them up,” he added.
There you have it, you silly, humorless naysayers. No worries; I’ll come and sing at your funeral. (I won’t dare tell a joke………….. I can’t remember them.)
Say! How’s about some Jiminy Cricket? (This happens to be my mother’s favorite curse word.) And now you have a bit more understanding of my psyche…………….oh, dear……..
If I could figure out how to post the pics of my cousin, I would. That is what husbands are for….
