And what have you transported unknowingly?!

Driving back from Ottawa we stopped over in Brockville for lunch. About an hour later, we pulled off the highway for another break and found our daughter's chocolate milk perched above the roof of our car! Incredible!

I remember another time, I was in such a rush to pick up my daughter that I left a box of takeout and my cell phone on top of the car as well! Both were in perfect conditon when I arrived at my destination.

What have you carried around with you lately? Feel free to share your stories of stowaways and other unknown items that you've unknowingly transported via car, boat, train, etc.

Story: The other day, RK saw me as I stepped out of the shower and said to me in horror, "Uh-oh! Your boobies fell down!" This coming from my 19 month old extended-breastfeeding daughter . As if I could actually pick them up just like I pick up a dropped bouncy ball. Hmm...maybe I should consider that boob lift after all.


Dear Friends...Welcome to the Laughter Factor.

I started this blog to encourage you to spread a little joy and laughter from your own experiences. There are too many times when we wished we could've done something to help another or even ourselves. When my father was ill, the hardest moments were made that much easier for all if we could share a good laugh together. When my best friend's husband passed away, I was desperate to find ways to help my friend through her grief. I yearned for silly summer days as kids when all I had to do was make a funny face or make fun of myself to make her laugh until her tummy was sore and her eyes teared with joy. I encourage you to spend a few moments to think of something funny that's happened to you and share it on this blog. While some may read this blog as a fun diversion, others may find the wisdom in another's humourous story or connect to another kindred soul with a similar experience. Here's to more laughter, love and healing. Enjoy!
