So now its that time, kiddos. Time to meet your inner child and check your inhibitions at the door. I’ll give you two options and you can choose whichever one tickles your funny bone. But whatever you decide, I want to hear about it.
TRUTH: Have you ever had the giggles in an inappropriate place?? … c’mon, we’ve all been there. Choking back our laughter in church, trying to stifle it during a test, even hiding our hysteria at a funeral. It doesn’t make you a bad person, whatever the situation. Sometimes, emotions strike us in the oddest of times or in the strangest places. Think back to a time that you, or someone you know, had THAT kind of day. Or, if you’re truly one of those blessed with an ability to control your inner urges, fictionalize it. Tell me a story that’d make me… uh, giggle in an inappropriate place.
DARE: For those of you who don’t mind getting your hands a little dirty, I offer you another route to take. Find a neighbor, preferably one you’re not too familiar with, and ask to borrow something. If you’re of the shy variety, it can be something as simple as a cup of sugar or an egg. Or, to liven things up or if you truly want to get to know your neighbor, tell them you had run out of things to watch and you were hoping they had a good DVD or book they could lend you to pass the time. Who knows, it may be the beginning of a new friendship.
These things can be fact or fiction…. I have no rules. Only that you let your imagination take you wherever it may go. My goal is simply to provide a little nudge (sometimes physical other times mental) to help you think outside the box. Have fun!
