Seriously Silly Smiles

Seriously, I've been sillily smiling since I smeared my face with soap this morning. Happy about what, I have no hope in hell of knowing. Happy about having to hurry to finish some work? No. Happy hearing about the horrendous hail in my home town? No. Have you ever just woken up and felt head-over-heals happy with out any reason? Well hey, I have! There are usually so many thick theoretical thoughts cluttering the pathways of creation, but today things seem different. Today I tossed the temptation to whine in the trash - and you know what I revealed? I revealed enthusiasm. Life's too short, I've decided. And seriously silly smiles, no matter how seriously stupid they seem, are worth looking seriously silly and stupid for. So, seriously, who cares that 'sillily' isn't a word. From today it is. "I've decided," says Allo smiling sillily.


  1. I'm a lot like that... just a happy person in general. I dunno, it just seems like the thing to do. :)

  2. Wish I could be like this every day! :) It's funny isn't it, when things just, all of the sudden, seem worthwhile. I'm usually quite pessimistic... (says me wondering if I should be admitting it ... hmm hmm hmm *humming trailing off into distance).
