The last four-day work week was long. I have always said that, “the people you work with can make or break your day.” At the unit, you end up working with different people every day. This week, one day, I worked with an individual who went through the day using humor to make it through the intense climate we endure. And of course you learn something new everyday … for example:

Do you know what sex and rain storms have in common?

You never know how long it will last or how many inches you are going to get!

I have always believed that laughter is the best medicine. It breaks the ice, it brings people closer together and it makes the day go by faster and more fun. Laughter inflates the spirit.

They discovered the secret ingredient in Viagra… “fix-a-flat.’

Breathe in. Breathe out.
Breathe in. Breathe out.
Forget this and attaining Enlightenment
will be the least of your problems.

Ikkyu, the Zen master, was very clever even as a boy. His teacher had a precious teacup, a rare antique. Ikkyu happened to break this cup and was greatly perplexed. Hearing the footsteps of his teacher, he held the pieces of the cup behind him. When the master appeared, Ikkyu asked, “Why do people have to die?”

“This is natural,” explained the older man. “Everything has to die and has just so long to live.”

Ikkyu, producing the shattered cup, added, “It was time for your cup to die.”

Japanese Zen master Sesso warned, “There is little to choose between a man lying in the ditch heavily drunk on rice liquor, and a man heavily drunk on his own ‘enlightenment’!”

A Zen Buddhist opened up a hot-dog stand and his first customer paid with a £20 note.

After waiting, the customer demanded, “Where’s my change?”

“Sir,” replied the Buddhist, “change must come from within.”
