|My Feet Are My Only Carriage..|
My office at work isn't what you would call...conventional. I have pictures posted everywhere of beautiful landscaping: waterfalls, green valleys, lakes, wooden bridges and old dilapidated wooden barns, snowy moutains and spring time forests. I also have pictures of my animals and my two favorite shows: Six Feet Under and Sons of Anarchy. But the funniest pictures are totally random - comics, memes, odd photoshopped works of art.
I mean...I have to.
I'm here all day every day it seems. Going on 12 years now.
My office is very...colorful.
It makes me happy.
So when visiters come in and I greet them they see my quirky side. While they wait for whoever they are visiting they have free range to view what I have on display.
Here they are - the business suites or corporate representatives. Local vendors trying to get business.
And this morning was no different than any other, except for one visiter who shared in my sense of humor.
As he was waiting for a coworker of mine, he read some of my displays and started busting up laughing.
I turn around to face him and he's pointing at one of my favorite pcitures.
It's of an ostrich with a caption I typed down at the bottom:
As he's laughing, the older man says, "What's so funny?! How about I peck out your eye! That would be funny!"
I laughed along with him and we joked more with each other.
"I love that picture!" he exclaimed.
As my coworker came around the corner we were still laughing and joking with each other.
Right away the good mood was spread to my coworker, and they began laughing and talking with each other.
Humor is awesome.
I'm glad he appreciated my photo I've had posted for years now. So many people come in and just start laughing when they see this bird all up in your face and can't help but giggle at the caption.
Because it's funny as all hell.
Just a simple picture says a thousand words.
And it spreads joy.
I don't know why but this experience really made my day.
I love being able to laugh...to joke...to feel happy with every ounce of my being.
I've been experiencing that more and more lately with very special people, one in particular.
I hope they know how much that means to me...and how much they mean to me.
I'm just really happy. For really good reasons, too.
