A friend posted a link on Facebook. Nothing unusual about that, except that I actually clicked on it. I rarely click on the links friends post (who has time to read a thousand links a day? okay...maybe a hundred), but this one caught my eye because she promised it was hilarious.
It was for a banana slicer. I know, that's not funny, but the customer reviews are a hoot!
Later, when visiting friends, I told them about the witty reviews. Brian quickly searched the slicer and read aloud several of the tongue-in-cheek comments while we howled with laughter.
Now it's become a running joke. Cindy came to stay with us a few days, and Brian sent a text requesting her return because he didn't know how to slice the bananas. I responded, "Cindy knows how to slice bananas??? I might put her to work tomorrow morning when I have my cereal!"
Later, as my husband cut some over-ripe bananas into chunks (to freeze for smoothies), I took a quick video of the procedure and sent it to Brian to brag about Kurt's talent, but admitted that he has yet to master the skill of thinner slices.
I recently read that laughter (30 minutes a day) aids in weight loss. If that is true, then why does Santa's belly shake like a bowl full of jelly? (Hohoho.) Still, it does help with healthy living since it lifts the mood, brightens the outlook, and is, after all, the best medicine.
