Why do we take things so seriously? It’s time to stop and smell the flowers before we are looking up at the flowers.
Hey, I’m guilty of the above taking things to seriously, not doing things that I used to have fun at, but deny they are fun as an adult. Or, it’s time to lighten up Francis, (movie reference, look it up if you don’t know it).
I would like to salute the LA Dodgers for clinching the National League West last night. They celebrated in the normal baseball fashion, they popped champagne and beer, sprayed each other and just plain ole jumped up and down. The next thing they did, I feel was great. They took their celebration beyond the outfield fence at Chase ballpark and jumped and dove into the pool in full uniform and continued their celebration. The Diamondback organization called it classless, I call it fun. Why not celebrate in an unconditional fashion? Why not have fun? I appreciate the Dbacks didn’t like it, but to see grown men jumping in a pool fully dressed, acting like kids, comon, that is fun. Lighten up Dbacks, if you had clinched the west you would have and should have done the same thing.
Make it a fun weekend. Remember, do something new, I promise laughing will make you feel great. Poke fun at yourself if you make a mistake, slap your head and say oy vey!
PS Look for Monday mornings first post of soon to be former fat guy.
