The longer I live the more I think that humor is the saving sense. No matter what your heartache may be, laughing helps you forget it for a few seconds.  Joanne Goodwin helps me remember the power of well written words.

Joanne Goodwin’s Facebook posts are better than an apple a day at keeping the doctor away. Her posts will make you smile or laugh out loud. But be warned, they are addictive. Bet you can’t just read one.

Joanne is as humble as she is funny. She is quick to point out that her posts aren’t original. But that’s OK. When it comes to humor, borrowed humor is better than none at all.

So, I’m borrowing some of Joanne’s best in 2021.

11 of Joanne’s Best From 2021


3. Sometimes I dance on my bed & sing into my hairbrush… and other days… I take my medication.

4. If I’m reading their lips correctly, my neighbors are arguing about some creepy lady next door.

5. Getting over body issues is like getting over the fear of heights. the trick is not to look down.

6. I saw a man running and started to panic that there was a fire or a bear and then I remembered that some people just do that.

7.  There were 17 Oreo cookies left, so to give each of my 4 grandchildren the same, I was forced to eat 11 of them.

8. Every time I start exercising, I meet new people. They’re usually paramedics, but still… new people.

9. I was eating my daily apple when a doctor walked right up to me. My whole life has been a lie.

10. Does everyone get take ‘by mouth’ printed on their pills or did the pharmacist look over at me and think hmmm… she just might go the other way?

Looks like I won the bet since you got this far.

    “If by fitness you mean do I eat healthy and exercise regularly, then yes, I am not fit.”
    “I went outside without makeup on. A child cried and I think a bird flew into a window on purpose.”
    “All my life, I never thought I’d wake up at 6am to go jogging. Seems I was absolutely right.”
    “I’m sorry I gave such a blood curdling scream. It just seemed like you were never going to stop talking and I panicked.”
    “My kids say I need to stop trying to embarrass them but the joke’s on them because I’m not even trying.”
