It was a run-by fruiting

“Anything that is not funny at a certain point will be funny.”
– Robin Williams
I had never read that quote until this morning, but I’d say it is probably the quote that best describes how I live my life. I can take things seriously when I need to, but most of the time I take nothing seriously. I love to laugh (hence, gigglechamp), especially at myself.
I particularly like to laugh at myself for the stupid things I do, and I do a lot of stupid things.
I was at the gym last night, and put an effervescing electrolyte tab in my water bottle (one of those Contigo bottles with a straw) then when I opened the straw, it squirted all over me. It went in my eye.
It was hilarious. I missed half of the squat track because I was trying to clean it up. And laughing. And trying to see. I felt sticky the rest of the class, because it was a strawberry lemonade electrolyte tab, and while there isn’t a lot of sugar in them, they’re still sticky.
I don’t know how I would get through a day if I took myself too seriously, and I know I definitely would not have gotten this far in my gym work without being able to laugh.
It was one of the things that I was scared about before I started working out — what if everyone is looking at me? I don’t know why I worry about that so much, but I do. I still care a little bit, but mostly I don’t care if they’re looking at me. I might do something stupid, but no doubt I’ll find it as amusing as they do, so we can just laugh at me together.
Moral of the story: Laugh at yourself. It’s fun (and when you do it at the gym, it’s healthy for your mind AND your body)!

  1. Don’t worry about people laughing at you, because they’re usually laughing at the dumb shit Jave says. πŸ™‚

    And I’ve never seen you like, stroke your sideburns or anything too crazy, so you just blend in with the rest of us gym rats. πŸ™‚

    • Even if they do laugh at me, I don’t really care. (And I’m 99% sure no one pays enough attention to me to actually laugh at me.)
      Perhaps my fear is just a projection, since I laugh at other people. Because I’m a jerk.

      And, no, no sideburn stroking, so I do have THAT going for me.
