The Best Medicine

Yes. Laughter. The total belly aching tearing variety. Undeniably the best remedy for anything.

It happened the other night with our good friends Leo and Sandy. Hysteria.

We return from our overseas excursion and are so glad to be home. The fur babies are content and Leo and Sandy have coddled them. There’s a snack tray with our name on it. A warm welcome for sure.

Jet lag sets in and we have to come to grips with the time change. We have gained 6 hours. Only 10 pm at home but our brains think it’s 4 am. Yikes! Sleep is elusive but finally we conk out.

The next day there’s errands to do; a slight backlog of random chores that need attention. For example, paying my fine for speeding in New York State (grrrr). We arrange to rendezvous at 1 pm at Sidelaunch Brewery; it’s a dog friendly spot we love and since Molly is doing errands with me she will be coming along. The sun is shining and there’s no one at the brewery but us. We enjoy a couple of beers. Then we head home.

Among the errands we covered is a pitstop for steaks and asparagus. Yummy. After our brewskies we head home to start an early dinner. We’ve been doing that more often; skipping lunch in favour of an early dinner and we really like it. The menu is set and we open a delicious bottle of wine. Leo and Sandy are rather digging the early bird special.

The conversation is lively and we enjoy a great meal. Then Leo presents the Ditka. A sample of cannabis he got at a conference. So we sample.

What ensues is the most laughing event I have ever experienced. Ever. The funny tales (perhaps not even normally that funny) were downright hilarious. I laughed so hard I cried.

And we were in bed by 9:30 pm.

Spring has sprung. It’s all good.
