One-Liner Wednesday — Smile

“Be Happy! It drives other people crazy!”

I had to laugh yesterday morning when I poured myself my first cup of coffee, reached for a packet of Splenda (artificial sweetener), and saw what was printed of the back of the packet.

It’s too bad there’s a pandemic and I have to wear a face mask outside because no one will be able to tell whether or not I am smiling, so I won’t be able to tell if my happy face is successfully making them crazy.

But I tried looking almost unnaturally happy yesterday morning in front of my wife. When she ask why I was so happy, I said, “No reason. I’m just happy.”

And you know what? It really pissed her off. So much so that she barely spoke to me for most of the day!

    Be happy – it pisses people off. I think I’ve seen that on a bumper sticker….

    Today I saw a man begging at a street corner wearing a mask with a smile on. I must get myself one of those!

      No, but I think, if I seem too happy, she gets suspicious. 😏

        Okay, so adding a bouquet of flowers to your happy smile would probably be unwise, huh?

          Ha! She’d definitely think, if I did that, that I felt guilty about whatever it was that made me so happy. 😉
