Be Silly!

Silliness is probably a good quality to have.

If you embrace the silly, you’re taking a step toward not caring what other people think.

In general, I’m not a very silly person (except for when my brother and I are working–we’re both pretty silly with each other). As you can see, I’m dressing Gianna up to be a goofball a la Punky Brewster circa 1985. I think her hair lends itself to goofiness, though, so maybe that’s where it started.

I dressed her in these outfits:

[singlepic id=226 w=500 h=390 float=center]

I particularly love what ended up being a wrestler sort of outfit:

[singlepic id=229 w=500 h=390 float=center]

[singlepic id=230 w=500 h=390 float=center]

[singlepic id=231 w=500 h=390 float=center]

[singlepic id=232 w=500 h=390 float=center]

[singlepic id=233 w=500 h=390 float=center]

[singlepic id=234 w=500 h=390 float=center]

I took this last shot this morning while I went outside to see what the dogs and Gianna would do. As expected, they lined up to see what I was doing outside. Clyde had been sleeping, and since he always gnaws holes his blankets, he created a nice outfit for himself. We didn’t put it over his head–he did it himself!

He is a true clown.

So today, try to be silly at least once. Of course choose an appropriate time for it. Being silly to your boss might not be the best idea. When you’re doing this silly thing, remember that it doesn’t matter what other people think of you.

Just be happy.

  1. I know this probably ISN’T the case, but it LOOKS like Clyde just woke up and is wearing a ratty bathrobe and yawning.

    1.  @ElizabethStoops Actually that’s 100% exactly what he was doing! He woke up when he heard me go outside, so he hurried out into the sunroom and yawned about 5 times. He is a heavy sleeper in general, and takes a long time to wake up in the morning. He hadn’t even been outside yet, so he had managed to get his head through the hole while he was sleeping.

      1.  @JustinBarba Oh, that’s terribly funny. Btw — I notice in these picture that you guys don’t have a lot of furniture — is that an illusion? I also have a lot of “floor space” in my own home because I use it.

        1.  @ElizabethStoops It’s sneakily placed around perimeters, really. Plus, we have a pretty big house, and not a TON of furniture. Melissa likes things sparse anyway, and she’s always trying to get me to get rid of my theater seats (in the sunroom).
