National Goof Off Day

Last week a friend said, “You’re so damned philosophical lately that it makes my head hurt!” I think it was her way of saying, “Lighten up, Woman!” And, yes, I’ve been deep in my head lately. I fake no impunity. Much like that little Ikea car in the old commercials, I’ve had all kinds of thoughts and ideas stacked on my mind (ooooh… hey… that gives me an idea!).


As I was trying to wake up this morning, waiting for the first jolt of caffeine to kick in and watching the news, the traffic advisor guy reminded everyone that today is National Goof Off Day. Well, who am I to deny anyone a holiday! Celebrate as you see fit. In that light, I give you ten of my favorite fun-filled quotes…

Why are there wars
