March 2, 2016 – Fun
“Are you havin’ any fun?”
Popular song (1939) – Lyrics by Jack Yellen; sung by Tony Bennett
You’d probably be surprised how many people, when asked “What do you do for fun?” are stumped, or have to think hard and dig deep for an answer. So, You? What do you do for fun?
If you don’t have a quick and clear (and long-ish) answer, I’m here to encourage you to get there.
The opening lyrics of the song are:
Hey fellow with a million smackers
And nervous indigestion
Rich fellow eats milk and crackers
I’ll ask you one question:
You silly so-and-so
With all your dough:
Are you havin” any fun?
It does seem that work, family responsibilities, and just taking care of on-going life can fill our days quickly and completely, leaving little time for having fun. That’s life out of balance.
Right now, name several ways you like to have fun.
This week: Do at least a couple of them. (Yes, you can find time — you silly so-and-so!)
