So it is said that having a good hearty laugh regularly can prolong your life and reduce your stress levels considerably, it can make you smarter and happier too!
To bring a little happiness to your day here is a storey that we landed upon….
When you go into a supermarket, sometimes that one single impatient child, who is either shouting, screaming or generally being awkward and perhaps this is a topic a lot of us parents can relate to also.
In this case picture a grandfather, he has discovered a special method of dealing with his 3 year old grandchild and seeing this storey, and what he did made me laugh, really laugh my socks off!
As the badly behaved youngster, 3 years young, is walking with his grandfather through the supermarket, a woman is following them.
It’s blatant to her that he has his work cut out with the child, screaming for treats and goodies, biscuits, sweets, fruit, cereal, sugary fizzy drink, you name it!
Whilst this is going on grandad is making his way through the supermarket and in a steady voice saying:
“Easy, William, we won’t be long, Easy, boy.”
After much more aggro from the boy, grandfather says:
“It’s okay William, just a couple more minutes and we’ll be out of here. Hang in there, boy.”
At last at the checkout, the little boy in his final struggles for attention, throws things out of the shopping cart, again grandad says, calmly:
“William, William, relax buddy, don’t get upset. We’ll be home in five short minutes; stay cool, William.”
Greatly impressed by this the woman catches the grandfather at the car while loading the shopping and says:
“It’s none of my business, but you were amazing in there. I don’t know how you did it. That whole time, you kept your composure and no matter how loud and disruptive he got, you just calmly kept saying things would be okay. William is very lucky to have you as his grandpa.”
“Thanks,” said the grandfather, “but I’m William. The little brat’s name is Kevin.”
