the silly thing about silly

John Lennon once said, “It’s weird not to be weird.” Does being weird make you a limited edition? Weird a side effect of being awesome? My daughter told me the other day, “mommy, i love you because you’re silly and smart.” Time to get your sillyness on because according to a child, you can be both…hmmmmmm…reading¬†Dr. Seuss¬†is so validating, “We are all a little weird, and life’s a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.” Thinking as adults we might want to read more children’s books to put life in perspective….and while we’re on this crazy tangent, have a child give us our ‘performance reviews’ yearly. Wouldn’t it be so strange yet refreshing? Isn’t there power in not caring that you look silly? Not to put therapists out of business or anything, but, perhaps all we need is a good friend to be silly with on a regular basis. Eureka…I’ve found the perfect business…rent my children out for a good ole silly time. Ok…seriously…I think we could sum this absurd post to this, the best things in life really are silly. PIF.
