It’s the one thing that you absolutely always need. If you don’t have one, please go get one.
Like this guy, he walked into the gym today and before I could even say hi, he started shouting sarcastically, “If I dropped one of my fucking socks on the way in here I’m gonna have a fit.” He had a huge smile on his face.
“Oh my god, working out with one sock would be the worst. Completely unacceptable,” I joked with him.
“If I lost one, I’m not even gonna work out. I’m just gonna go out drinking.” he said sarcastically.
“Sounds like a plan!” I laughed as he walked back toward the locker rooms.
Later on, I caught him as he was on his way out.
“Hey did you find your sock?!” I shouted.
“Yeah! I got it! I’m still going out drinking though!” he said smiling back at me.
I laughed as he continued through the doors and out to the parking lot.
So, let’s review. What can we learn from this man? If you lose one sock, or your dog ate your homework, or you spilled some milk, don’t get mad. Laugh it off. Joke about it. It’ll turn out O.K. I promise.
