PostSubject: Laughter is good medicine   Mon Sep 10, 2018 1:27 am

I had a dream
Usually, getting up in the morning starts with coffee, checking emails, watching the news to see what Trump was up to during the night, and then proceeding to FB.  During this time, I try to find something amusing to relate to my wife when she gets up. I have found that starting the day with laughter is a good beginning.  I didn’t need to look for something amusing this morning as I was trying to understand the dream I had.
In my dream, I was at Penn State University attending a lecture.  I don’t recall the subject of the lecture, however at the end, the Professor distributed a test of sorts containing multiple choice questions.  Upon completion, I handed the paper to the Professor.  He looked it over and said that it was very good, then he asked, “Are you a student here?  I ask since you appear to be older than most students.”
“No, I’m not a student here.  I was just visiting since my children all received their Bachelor’s degree from Penn State and my wife entered the University when our youngest daughter started her Freshman year. Two of my children continued their studies and received advanced degrees from other universities. Although I have earned college credits from several universities, I have never pursued a degree.”
“Would you like to get a degree?” he asked.
“I will turn 80 in January.  Do you think that a degree will help my career?”
At this point we both broke out laughing and that’s when I woke up.  My wife heard me laughing in my sleep and when she got up, asked me what caused it.  When I related the dream to her it created another round of laughter.  Then she asked me what degree I intended to pursue. After another episode of laughter, it prompted some reflection on my past and the decisions that were made, however that’s another story.
Laughter is good medicine.

It brought a smile to me, too, Abe. Maybe your career is about to take off!

I was thinking about a career in writing and a title came to mind.  A book for “Dummies that want to become a US President”.  As for current readers, the circulation would be small, especially since the current President doesn’t or can’t read. It would be a short-lived career.

Thankfully, the current president will have a short  career.

How he survives is a mystery to me--I hope someone gets him in a huge trap or a skunk catches him.
