At Second Glance

Silly Self Help

Ray came in the house all nervous this morning. He said there was a white cat under his van tires. His daughter was studying animal health technologies at the time. She went out to rescue the cat. She came in shaking her head as teenagers do to their fathers.

“It wasn’t a white cat. It was a white plastic bag!”

Lesson? As you get older, get your eyesight checked every year and whatever you do, never say anything definitively to your teenagers.

I Can’t Talk Now

Silly Self Help

Ray was walking with his teenage daughter back to his car. In a panic, he begged her to start looking in and out of the car for his phone. Just then a phone rang. He answered and anxiously said to his wife “I can’t talk now! I lost my phone!!”

 His daughter, not having even lifted a finger to help look for the phone, said dryly “you mean your cell phone? The one you just answered and are talking on?”

Lesson? Don’t worry so quickly! Take an extra second and let the people who you trust and care about you help out once in a while.

Hurry up and Panic!

Silly Self Help

Eric’s computer stopped working as he was building a new one.

Hailey laughed and started running around the house shouting “It’s time to panic everyone! Let’s all panic!”

Lesson? There are times in life when it is time to panic. The louder the better!
Don’t do things half way. Throw your whole body and soul into it!

Polly’s in Trouble!

Silly Self Help

When someone needs May’s help, she sings this song from the cartoon underdog
“When Polly’s in trouble, I dare not slow, it’s hip hip hip and away I go!”

It’s funnier because she then takes off super slow with her cane.
Lesson? We can all help each other, no matter what is going wrong in our own life. It’s even more fun when singing a theme song!

Self Talk

Silly Self Help

Catherine read a good quote. She was later talking to herself.
She said “sometimes you have to. It’s the only intelligent conversation you might have for the day.”
Its really true. Unfortunately.

Have a detailed conversation. Get deep. Why not? You’ll understand the nuances.
