Warning! Suppressing Your Goofy Can Be Hazardous To Your Health! Just Sayin'
You know, in life, I think we are victims of society's expectations a lot of the time. We are expected to adjust our behavior to adhere to any given situation. Case in point: It would be frowned upon if one stood up and began doing a strip tease in church. Just sayin'.
For the most part, it is generally a good idea to co-operate with the rules of the road, so to speak, but now and again, you have to let your goofy flag fly!
I believe everyone has one, some just have put theirs in storage under copious amounts of moth balls.
Suppressing their goofy has become such a habit, they have forgotten it exists. It's sad.
I think that if this suppression is left unchecked, it can have adverse effects on your health. I believe that GSS (Goofy Suppression Syndrome) is responsible for most of the problems the world faces today. Can you imagine the kind of peace the world would experience if politicians and economists would just take a breath and make a few balloon animals? It is nearly impossible to declare war on someone who has just handed you a kick-ass balloon poodle hat. Just sayin'.
Back to the health issue, I apologize for getting so political.
Unchecked, I believe GSS can cause health issues such as, takelifetooseriouslyitis, can'tlaughatmyselfiosis, stickupbumfrombosis, and gas.
If continually forced to be internalized, the goofiness will find it's own means of escape, eventually. This may surface in ways unbeknownst to those who suffer most from GSS. They don't even realize the symptoms, as they become evident to others. These symptoms can vary in many ways. For some, the symptoms may be quite mild, and reveal themselves through strange attire, "accidentally" mismatching socks, for example. Others may suffer more severe symptoms, such as becoming a flash mob of one, in the middle of the food court at the mall on a Saturday afternoon, or beginning to tap dance and laugh hysterically in the waiting room of the ICU.
These sudden bursts of inappropriate behavior can be avoided, if the GSS is caught in time. The prevention of GSS is quite simple. Laugh hard and laugh often, and every now and again, crank up the volume on your favorite Disney Soundtrack as you cruise the strip on a beautiful Summer Saturday night, with the windows down, head boppin' and your Goofy Flag Flyin' High!
Soooooooooooooo, yep it's pretty late.
It's now 2:15am. We got home from the shop a couple of hours ago, busy day.
This whole week has been busy at the shop, it's been awesome. We are so grateful to have the opportunity to do this. Yes, we are putting in some long, hard hours, but it really doesn't feel like "work" in the sense we are used to.
We are learning a lot, helping out some very nice people, and we get to hang out together while we do it. We are very grateful, indeed.
For the next week.......
Tomorrow, it's laundry and then off to the city to help our daughter move, and inevitably to a bit of shop stuff.
We have several more trailers coming in this week as well as doing a maintenance seminar for the Samboree. (sort of a Good Sam Club convention)
Next Saturday...we have a gig doing a wedding, and looking so forward to it!
That about does it for me for this week, folks! Until next time, I'll leave you with this wish........
May you, if you feel weary, be weary from doing the things you love to do.
May you feel the "good" kind of tired, the kind from accomplishing all that you wanted to.
May you feel the satisfaction of a job well done, seeing the results reflected in a client's smile.
May you know in your achy bones at the end of the day, it was a good day, definitely worthwhile.
May you remember to laugh hard and often, do something silly, give it a try!
May you remember to open your windows wide, cruise, and let your goofy flag fly!
