Laughing is said to prolong life.
And apparently, it makes you smarter and happier.
To bring some festivity to this day, I thought I might invite you to a little funny story that I came across.
I think it's a topic that many of us can relate to: when as an adult we try to get through the supermarket with an impatient child either screaming or being difficult.
This time it's about a grandfather who has found his own special way of dealing with his 3-year-old grandchild — when I read this story to the end , I just couldn't help but to laugh out loud.
So make sure to read it all the way to the end and if you appreciate the story you're more than welcome to click on the share button afterwards in the hope that it'll cheer up more people on a day like this!
A woman in a supermarket is following a grandfather and his badly behaved 3 year old grandson.
It's obvious to her that he has his hands full with the child screaming for sweets in the sweet aisle, biscuits in the biscuit aisle, and for fruit, cereal and pop in the other aisles.
Meanwhile, granddad is working his way around, saying in a controlled voice,"Easy, William, we won't be long. Easy, boy."
Another outburst and she hears the grandfather calmly say, "It's okay William, just a couple more minutes and we'll be out of here. Hang in there, boy."
At the checkout, the little terror is throwing items out of the cart and granddad says again in a very controlled voice, "William, William, relax buddy, don't get upset. We'll be home in five short minutes; stay cool, William."
Very impressed, the woman goes outside where the grandfather is loading his groceries and the boy into the car.
She said to the elderly gentleman, "It's none of my business, but you were amazing in there. I don't know how you did it. That whole time, you kept your composure and no matter how loud and disruptive he got, you just calmly kept saying things would be okay. William is very lucky to have you as his grandpa."
"Thanks," said the grandfather, "but I'm William. The little brat's name is Kevin."
