Can you Find the Funny in Dysfunction?

Dysfunction is not funny but we can find the fun in it. How do you process the junk in your life? There are so many issues that we call dysfunction; from family (that’s the big winner) to every day events that trigger unhealthy emotions. The question is still; can you find the funny in dysfunction?Dysfunction is not funny but we can find the fun in it. How do you process the junk in your life?

I will admit that I have been on a high since November 12. My book, “Bury Me with My Pearls” has been in the top 20 in ten categories on Amazon (Women’s Issues, Comedy, Religion, etc.) I like to joke and say the book has been number 1, 2, 8, 12, and I got a “0” in writing in college. I was reminded of the lesson of “don’t get too big for your britches” the other day in the grocery store.
Down the aisle I heard, “Are you Jane Herlong?”
“Yes,” I replied.
“Oh, Honey. I LOVE your book!” said the stranger.
“Thank you!” I replied. “Is it the Pearl book?”
“Oh, no, it is the book about the titties.” She replied.
Just a little background info: I wrote a book called, “What Ta-Tas Teach Us” that is a fun but informative little book about what our anatomy as women teaches us. It really is a sweet book in memory of my sister who had breast cancer.
“I love the book!” the stranger continued. “You know where I got it from? A yard sale, it was a quarter. And if you do the math, it cost me about 12 cents a titty.”
There is a saying in the South that goes like this; You can’t make this stuff up.
I guess you could call it a dysfunctional moment but that stranger, in her own special way, was trying to be nice. The best part was finding the funny in dysfunction.
I hope you can do the same! Live well and laugh often!
