How about a laugh, (hopefully)

Posted by Leonard @jakedduck1, Dec 31, 2018

I believe laughter is the best medicine. Laughter has actually been scientifically proven to help people with depression issues.
Let’s give it a try so we can all get happy and feel better. Many Epilepsy forums I’ve been on had joke sections. I was probably the biggest joke of all since I didn’t get a lot of the jokes. They said the jokes couldn’t be above 4th grade level for me to understand them so my jokes may be rather simplistic but let’s give it a try.
Have a lovely day everyone,
Jake

When I was a child my parents referred to one of the doctors we saw as "an old vet". I was always uncomfortable going to him because I didn't like going to an old man that was actually an animal doctor. I never confronted them about it, but as an adult I always check the credentials of doctors I am going to see and choose the best qualified.
It was only after my son got home from the Navy and started using the Veterans medical services that I realized that my parents may have been referring to a former military medical man rather than an animal doctor.

@2011panc That reminds me, when I was young, it was common to ask what your father did for a living. We were confused. We asked our folks how to answer that question. We were told "your dad is an engineer". From then until I was in high school, it was customary for me to wave at any train going past our house, in the hopes of waving and greeting our dad. It wasn't until later I realized he was an electronic engineer, nothing to do with trains.
Hopefully it made the day for some of those guys who got greetings from someone on the sidelines.

@gingerw It's always funny to hear what goes through the mind of a child. My father was a manager and generally got home at 5:30 like clockwork. If he was late my mother would say he must be tied up at the office. This was back in the days of cowboy shows so I would always picture my father being tied to his chair by someone!

@contentandwell Children are so literal. My oldest drew a picture of me "hitting the roof". I was up on the roof with a hammer. In another picture he had me sitting in a desk chair rotating around the globe and titled "My mom works faster than the world". Such precious memories.

@gingerw Speaking of trains . . . the men in my family all wore bib overalls; my father was the only one that wore "railroad" bibs. I never did learn why, but it was always easy to pick him out from a distance.

@contentandwell As a child we played "cops and robbers" or "cowboys and indians", so it is easy for me to envision being tied to a stool in the milkhouse waiting for "rescue"!

My dad was a mechanical engineer. I found out it had nothing to do with trains. But when my dad was working for Hamilton Beach (appliances), one of my friends asked him how he liked being a life guard!

My son came home from school today, he said he was depressed. I asked him why he said I learned a new saying in school “like father like son”

I joined a health club today. They said look better in 10 days or we will give you your money back. I gave the lady a check and she said keep it we’re just going to mail it back anyway.

Rodney was my favorite comedian. He died in 2004 and was on Johnny Carson right before his heart surgery and he was joking about dying during the operation which as I it understand it that’s what happened. Very sad.
