Sometimes surprises are good. Like finding a dollar on the street or running into a long lost friend.

Sometimes surprises are bad. Like having a dead battery when you’re running late for carpool, or opening a package of raw chicken only to discover that it’s gone bad.

One thing I know for sure, it’s how you react to life’s surprises that can make or break your day, or week, or life.

When in doubt, choose laughter.

And take your calcium chews.

Because it’s really hard to laugh about being knocked down and dry-humped from behind when your hip is broken.

mirthfully yours,

-Iris
