Day 122 - Spontaneous Ridiculousness

>> Saturday, January 9, 2010

I think the world would be a much better place if we all just indulged in our natural inclination towards spontaneous ridiculousness a little bit more.

Now, although I really can't say whether or not we are all wired this way, I do think that deep down, everyone has a goofy, silly, dorky side that's just dying to come out and be released into the free world.

I, for instance, am always feeling the need to break out into song or dance. I personally believe that things are simply much more fun to sing, rather than to simply say.

For example - "could you feed the dog dear?" doesn't sound nearly as naggy to someone if you sing it to them in your sexiest Barry White voice instead. Plus, it's just way more fun. "Have you seen my black sock?" sung in a falsetto opera voice is wayyy more entertaining than a simple, spoken question.

I have also found that adding a little jig at the end of any phrase is guaranteed to make someone laugh or lighten any situation (except for maybe at work, 'cause your boss might just think you're weird). I especially recommend doing the "robot" if you find you've just put your foot in your mouth and need to quickly distract the person you're talking to from rehashing in their mind what you just said. (Not that I ever put my foot in my mouth - it's too stinky).

In all seriousness . . . why are so many people so darn serious all the time? I am a total goober - and I wish I could act out my complete gooberishness all the time and not feel like I need to censor myself 'cause it wouldn't be "appropriate". Who ever lay there on their deathbed and thought to themselves "well I'm glad I acted appropriately - thank the heavens for that!"

I saw some really cranky people today out and about and just kept thinking to myself "man - that lady needs to sing more" or "wow - that man needs to do a little tap dancing more often".

Singing = happiness
Dancing - happiness

Singing + Dancing + doing both whenever you feel like it = a perfect moment, (whether it's appropriate or not).

Agreed LOL
Oh how often when I hear a simple phrase/sentence/question it reminds me of a song and I totally feel like breaking out into singing. I usually have to explain to people why I am bobbing my head or have this dancing groove about me - because there is always music playing in my head. Life is so much more enjoyable that way. Have you ever been caught in a public place (where you thought you were alone) going about some sillyness, be it a sound or singing or dancing? It's funny I tell ya. You both pretend that nothing happened but inside you're laughing wondering what that person is thinking of you at that moment. And imagining that person joining you and breaking into a song like in some silly movie. HAHA
