Wise Guys with a Hangover!

Laughter is a powerful antidote to stress, pain, and conflict. Nothing works faster or more dependably to bring your mind and body back into balance than a good laugh. Humor lightens your burdens, inspires hopes, connects you to others, and keeps you grounded, focused, and alert.

With so much power to heal and renew, the ability to laugh easily and frequently is a tremendous resource for surmounting problems, enhancing your relationships, and supporting both physical and emotional health.

On Saturday night, Niel and I laughed and laughed.... and then almost cried. We went to Wise Guys Comedy Club in West Jordan. James Connolly was the stand up comedian for the night. This guy is hilarious!! I personally am not a huge stand up comedian fan just because most of them have such offensive language. But Connolly put on a great show!! Niel and I laughed and laughed!!

The night was still young and the kids were gone. We were feeling so good from all the laughing we figured we might as well keep on going. The movie theater was right next door to the comedy club so we walked on over and bought tickets to The Hangover.

This show was freaking hilarious!!! I am a big fan of Ed Helms and just had to see if he was as funny as in The Office. He had me rolling on the floor with laughter. This movie is on my top 5 funniest movies of all time!! Granted I had been awake since 4:30 that day and it was getting past 10:00 at night, but the movie sure was entertaining!

As the night was coming to a close and my sides were happily hurting from the extremely fun evening, Niel drove over to where my car was suppose to parked. He had met me up near 90th South since my work was right there and I didn't want to drive ALL the way home. As we turned the corner to drop me off we were shocked to find the Trailblazer missing. I guess it wasn't THAT big of a shock since there were signs posted everywhere that read

"NO PARKING!"

It was an expensive lesson learned. A day later and $206 shorter on cash, we were able to get the family vehicle returned to us safe and sound. I am not a big fan of Speedy Towing Company.

Thank goodness we had laughed as much as we did earlier that night. Laughter was the antipote to our stressful situation. It made the pain in our pocket books a lot easier to bare.
