Daily Prompt: Make Me Smile If you’re feeling blah, what is the one thing you do that you can count on to put a smile on your face?
EMOTIONAL FITNESS TIP
Become a comedian.
I can’t tell you how much I love shopping. Not for what I buy, mostly food or toys for the grands. No, it is for the opportunity to josh or flirt with the humans operating the cash registers. Hate that technology has dwindled the number of people taking my money.
One of my favorite lines and usually in response to the “Did you find everything you wanted?” now required of most cashiers.
My “Get a laugh” response: “No. (pause for effect) I am still looking for the million dollars needed to keep up with the cost of living. Guess you haven’t found it either.”
Always gets a surprised look and a laugh that makes my day.

Thank you all for all you do to care and share with others. Doing a little matters a lot.
This post was inspired by this Daily Prompt: If I could Turn Back Time If you could return to the past to relive a part of your life,which part of you life would you return to? Why?
Probably somewhere between 50 and 60. Why, my body and brain would be functioning well and I would have all the good memories. No, that wouldn’t work, because I would not know the joy of being a grandparent. Now is all we have, I am grateful mine is as good as it is.
