Note to Myself No. 20

Sometimes I have a little trouble
letting myself
be silly.

It's not that I don't want to,
you understand,
it's that I'm concerned about
looking silly.
Ridiculous, even.

Will I ever get over that?
(Only in the right circumstances,
with enough encouragement.)

Do you have trouble being silly
and cutting loose?

Not often ! I definitely have a silly, playful gene that is well-developed. I have been know to where Groucho Marx glasses with the nose and mustache to the mall, just because...
My husband is more "dignified" and occasionally gets a little embarassed by my silliness. But every once in a while, he joins in. That makes me thrilled !
Get sill whenever the urge takes you, Meri ! Life is too short to worry about being embarassed !

Just be silly, it's a lot more fun.
