A Funny Thing Happened

The other day I was riding the grocery store scooter across the end of one aisle. Another woman on a scooter was making a wide turn in my direction after coming out of the next aisle over. She accidentally knocked something off of a display that fell to the floor unbroken. About four other customers turned to look at who ran into the display.

As the other woman felt the gaze of everyone go to her, she looked at me and with a mischievous twinkle in her eye pointed at me and said, “She did it.”

At first I looked surprised then I began too laugh because I saw what she was doing. There was no malice in her accusation and the bystanders were not upset. Everyone nearby started laughing. We grinned broadly at each other as if we had coordinated something funny to make people laugh.

It felt good to inadvertently be involved in a mischievous and humorous incident which brought a little stress relief for those present.

You may find situations like this that are somewhat silly but if they can cause others to share a laugh and brighten someone’s shopping trip or even their day, what is the harm? It helps to be aware of where you are, who you are near and what feels like a situation that may spread some fun and levity to someone’s day.

  1. Cute. LOL
    When I was in the hospital recently, they were doing tests on several of us in the same huge room. One of the workers slid across the vinyl seat of a small chair, and you can imagine the sound it made. I said, “That wasn’t me.” And everyone laughed. It’s great to make people laugh.
