Resilient people have a funny bone; here is a test of yours.
Cat On The Roof
A man left his cat with his brother while he went on vacation for a week. When he came back, he called his brother to see when he could pick the cat up. The brother hesitated, then said, I’m so sorry, but while you were away, the cat died.”
The man was very upset and yelled, “You know, you could have broken the news to me better than that. When I called today, you could have said he was on the roof and wouldn’t come down. Then when I called the next day, you could have said that he had fallen off and the vet was working on patching him up. Then when I called the third day, you could have said he had passed away.”
The brother thought about that and saw his point. He apologized.
“So how’s Mom?” asked the man who had been on vacation.
“She’s on the roof and won’t come down.”
Funny? Well, whether you think so or not, Pete’s grandmother LOVED it. Tomorrow, I will tell you why it matters. But for today - keep in mind that having a sense of humor is good for you!
