Friends are precious. They laugh at your jokes, even when it isn’t that funny and laughter is important; life and your health should always include lots of smiles and laughter.
I consider myself very fortunate to have friends that put up with my sense of humor. In Canada, our money is in Canadian dollars; spelled the same as the American dollar. The Canadian dollar is no longer a paper bill but a coin with bird on it, A loon. When Canadians talk about dollars we often refer to the coins as “loonies“.
The other kind of “loony” is a name for someone who is wild and crazy.
So what does this have to with friendships. Well I was at the grocery store yesterday and I spotted a sign on the coin operated massage chairs that are outside the grocery store.
The sign on the coin slot said “Loonies Only”. I called a friend KW, who wasn’t expecting a call from me so she wondered what was the news or reason for the call. I told her, Something going on at the grocery store, the massage chairs have signs on them that say “loonies only” – I thought you should know.
She got the joke right away and we had a good laugh, together.
Laughter with friends, priceless. Maybe this is a “you had to be there” moment but I hope you get the joke regardless.
