Okay, uptight people, you know who you are. You worry about appearances, you worry about propriety, you worry about money, you worry about other people, you worry about worrying. Well, you can pull the stick out on
NATIONAL LOOSEN UP, LIGHTEN UP DAY!
Today we celebrate laughter, beauty, joy, leisure pursuits and zaniness, those gifts that make life worth living.
But the state of the world is one big emergency, you say?
When hasn’t it been a godawful mess? It will be that way without you getting an ulcer over it.
“But there’s important things to do!,” you exclaim earnestly.
Yes, there are, and they will be waiting for you after you’ve had some fun.
Denounce the dreary and the grim today, and embrace your silly bone. Tell a joke, read a trashy magazine, roll around on the floor with the kids and dogs, jump in a pile of leaves and eat pizza for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Do something for no reason today, something you don’t have to do, you’ll be a better and happier person for it.
