Is This Thing On???

Today's gratitude is inspired by my young E-man. It's a request actually and he will be incredibly grateful for your help.

The year end school talent show is looming and every year E-man is determined to participate. The only problem we generally encounter is the logistical confines of bringing a skating rink or a skateboard park in for his performance. He's not yet been able to join the ranks of performers.

This year however he has a plan...he's going to build on his natural sense of humor and perform a stand-up comedy routine.
This is where he is asking for help. There is a need for fresh material. 'G' rated school based humor preferably, it is public school after all and I still need to show my face around the halls for another 3 years. I'd like him to graduate grade 6 unscathed and preferably before he turns 30.

With enough time to perfect a routine and some new material that does not contain to word "fart" he'll have them rolling in the aisles.

So go ahead...give us what you got! Could I ask also, that while you are on your knees digging that joke book out of the cupboard, that you say a little prayer for me? Something along the lines of "Lord, please save my friend from public humiliation at the hands of her son." (have you ever met a comic who didn't make fun of his parents?)

Spend some moment everyday in reflection of gratitude and happiness. Even if the time found is standing in line for coffee...use is wisely.


Did this post brighten your day? make you smile? If so I'd be ever so grateful if you shared it on Facebook or Twitter. Someone else might be in need of a smile - Thanks!
