Mary Poppins is one of my favorite Disney movies. Remember this scene?:
How can anyone watch that and not at least giggle a little? One of the blogs I read is No Impact Man. He tells of a charming little thing he does with his almost-four-year-old daughter, Isabella:
I ask Isabella sometimes: “Why were we born?”
She says: “To laugh.”
I ask her: “What’s our responsibility?”
She says: “To make sure other people can laugh, too”
Isabella will be four in a month. She didn’t think of these answers on her own. I brainwashed her into saying them.
Guess what happens when she gives those answers in front of other people?
I honestly believe that if we all adopted this philosophy the world would be a better place. If you haven’t laughed today, check out the video clip in yesterday’s post and that should take care of the “no laughter today” thing.
