Amendments

June 5: Come up with a new constitutional amendment.


I'm a little fired up about politics right now (Wisconsin, Gay marriage, equal pay, the list goes on...), so I'm trying not to take this super seriously.

All persons must spend at least 1% of their day laughing.

Think about it. You have 1,440 minutes in a day. Doctors think you should sleep for 480 (8 hours) of those, leaving you with 960 minutes. If you laughed for 1 minute every hour you were at work (assuming 8 hours,) and then laughed nearly 2 minutes while at home, your day would be so much lighter.

Yes, there are times that it may be inappropriate to laugh, but laughter can cure so many things. Laughter makes us feel lighter, makes us see things in a new light and (according to Mark Twain, I think) is instant vacation.

We all have seen those inspirational quotes (either online, on boards, printed in offices, etc.) We should Live well. We should Love much. But most importantly, we should Laugh often.

I'm trying to tell you something about my life,
Maybe give me insight between black and white.
And the best thing you've ever done for me
Is to help me take my life less seriously,
It's only life, after all.

I would TOTALLY support that amendment (and I share your sentiment about politics these days)...except I would amend your amendment and up that percentage to 10%. Let's really make the most of our lives! :)

SUCH a good idea. It's one of the reasons I love Tina to bits. She gives me one good solid belly laugh every day. Lucky for her, it seems to compensate for the biting and rage...

I'd love to hear what you think!
