In Need Of Laughter

llamas-featuredIn Need of Laughter

I won’t be disappointed when February is over this year.

It’s been a dark and gloomy month – and I’m not just talking about the weather. I’m guessing I’m not alone in feeling a bit dragged down by world, local, and personal news of late because yesterday the whole social media world seemed to need a break from it all.

We took a break from the gloom and doom to watch two llamas chasing each other in Arizona and to cast our vote whether a dress was white and gold or blue and black.

If you didn’t catch the folderol, here’s a video of the llamas: http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-nation/wp/2015/02/26/breaking-two-llamas-are-on-the-run/

And here’s a picture of the dress. (If you want to start an argument, show it to your friends – it’s true, some will say it’s white and gold and others will insist it’s blue and black.) http://abcnews.go.com/Lifestyle/white-gold-blue-black-internet-sees-dress-colors/story?id=29261175

If you’ve never used social media such as Facebook or Twitter, I doubt these two items will convince you to sign up. They aren’t a bit useful or helpful. They aren’t ‘deep’ by any stretch of the imagination. They don’t provide meaning to life; they don’t solve any of the world’s problems; they don’t feed the hungry.

But they were fun. And laughter can be holy.
