Much Needed Laughs From Strangers

Despite the bright sunshine on Sunday April 6, I wasn’t having a great day. Not having enough sufficient hours for work that weekend wasn’t helping. I didn’t even bother to attend my Sunday afternoon bowling league, because my heart wasn’t into playing. While sitting around in the Apple Shop inside Yorkdale Shopping Centre, two young Filipino boys were watching comedy videos on YouTube. I was also watching a comedy video on Youtube, and that’s when we started to exchange laughs.

The kicker came when they introduced X-Factor. There were two epic performances which were truly embarrassing. One of those performances left me speechless & unable to laugh. The other one took shocking to a whole new level before I laughed non-stop. I didn’t care if this was a public place, I just needed the laughs to let myself loose. Here the first video:

It takes exceptional talent to not only shock me, but leave me speechless & unable to laugh. This idiot was successful at accomplishing both. Bless your soul, young man.

The second video already had me laughing before the outrageous began. From the costume attire to the looks on Paula’s, Nicole’s & Simon’s faces to his outrageous actions. I’ll never look at auditions the same way again. Here’s a look:

When the parents came over to get their sons, I thanked them for helping to get me laughing. The mother said they’re very knowledgeable with their home computer. I then asked if they knew more than both parents combined. Her response was with her exposed palm “I plead the 5th.” I may never see them again, but their ability to brighten my Sunday afternoon really helped.

Laughter is good medicine for the soul

Rockin’ out

Hello fellow bloggers. Well, it’s high time to finally enter the world of blogging, so here’s to taking the plunge & writing about life in general. So many time I debated about doing this, saying the following things: Nighthawk finally took the plunge. After months of dithering, debating & procrastination, he’s finally found the courage to start writing a blog. He’s done it before, only to ditch it halfway & lose interest. Now thanks to a bloggers seminar & his brother’s success on WordPress, he’s ready to write & have fun doing so.

  • What if nobody even reads it?
  • When will I know if people are reading it?
  • How will I reach my audience?

On & on. There were so many questions I kept asking myself, yet I never bothered to try. As one person quoted “Stop worrying about what could go wrong & start wondering about what could go right.”  Where will the world of blogging take Nighthawk? Anywhere his imagination desires. Now sit back & relax with a cold beverage at hand. Prepare to enter Nighthawk’s world. There’s plenty of stories waiting to be told.


Rockin’ On
