Friends are precious

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.
