The above? Fridge magnets given to me as gifts by those who know me well. The sentiments expressed in each are rather close to home but not quite all the way there. Yet.
They may be verging on “sad but true” but since they’re all so spot on in depicting certain aspects of my life (with some exaggeration) the humour factor trumps any “poor-pitiful-me” factor. Each one makes me smile.
And isn’t that what humour is all about? Its origins in reality and truth – its laughter and smiles in the exaggeration.
May I never be too stressed, too preoccupied with pain – or too forgetful – to smile and laugh.
Credits: I scanned two of my magnets but the other one is at the cottage – so I used Google images – hence the wording on that image
