Why It Is Funny To Look Like An Ass in Public
It’s happened to me so many times. I come by these kinds of situations naturally.
Scenario 1: I routinely fight with the grocery carts (almost to the death) to separate them. I cause quite the commotion, I need the damn cart! Thanks to weight lifting, I smash those things around and eventually am successful! But what a scene I cause!
Scenario 2: I go out for a few hours, to shop, whistling along, beautiful warm day, smiling at strangers. Come home to discover that I’ve been wearing my full length cooking apron.
Scenario 3: Enter the public domain, come home to find out I’ve been wearing two distinctly different shoes. Shorts on. Summertime.
All true stories.
Uptight people may say I need to slow down, stop racing around, look down up around sideways before I leave the house to ensure that I’ve put myself together properly for public ‘consumption.’ Or find an easier shopping cart to extricate, that kind of thing.
Well, I already try all that, ok?
If someone took me aside to point out my public blunders (rarely happens) I would blush a hothouse tomato red. I prefer to blunder in peace. After all, image is so important!
Or, wait…isn’t Image another bill of goods we’ve been sold to stress ourselves out? Isn’t it healthier to laugh at one’s mistakes? Aren’t human foibles tremendously entertaining?
Laughing at oneself relieves stress! Life is absurd! Embrace it!
