BRANSON








What defines a "comedian"? Purists might reserve that word only for stand-ups, and they are wrong. That elitism excludes improvisers, magicians, sideshow performers, burlesque performers, sketch artists and more. In my opinion, anyone that regularly and intentionally makes others laugh is a comedian. (and the best kind of person)
In Branson this weekend, I met some of the funniest and hardest working comedians I've ever come across. Half Hee-Haw, half Second City, these guys put on one hell of a good show. Plus, they were extremely nice to a certain touring stand-up psychologist. If you haven't, y'all need to get your butts out to Branson sometime and see the Comedy Jubilee.

Happy Mardi Gras!

The streets of downtown are all closed off to allow for the big Mardi Gras festival. At some point in the evening I find myself near the perimeter and I overhear a woman asking an obvious security guard "are they going to let a cab get in here to pick me up?"

Now, looking around I have no idea who she might be referring to with the word "they". The only person present who seems to have any authority is the security guard she is questioning. Does she mean he? And if so why not just ask him if he will allow a cab to come in?

She seems to imply that she thinks this situation is not only outside of her control but also his.

As I am pondering her language use, I notice in my periphery a taxi cab parked across the street from the festival perimeter. I point and I tell her "why don't you just take that one?"

To which she replies "that is not the company I called."

As I walk away, leaving her standing there still frustrated at the security guard, I am reminded of my Sunday school teachings that "The Lord helps those who help themselves."

People who help themselves, get help. Unfortunately,  she was too stressed  to see the obvious solution  staring her in the face.

And this is why in two weeks I will be touring the country telling people how to manage their stress.

Happy Mardi Gras everybody!

Maybe we should give up stress for Lent?

Life Hacks from a Doctor! Part 1

If you've spent any time on the internet you must be familiar with the concept of "Life Hacks", little nontraditional tricks to make life better. One of my favorite involves cutting cherry tomatoes. If you still don't know what I'm talking about, check out this:


Now, you might be thinking to yourself "That's freaking brilliant!" BUT I'm here to tell you that I have developed an EVEN BETTER way to do it! One that leaves you with ZERO dirty dishes! No plates or knife to clean.

Step 1: Get a package of your favorite brand of cherry tomatoes. I prefer these cuz they are named after fat babies.


Step 2: Place a small amount of them into the palm of your hand, like this.


Step 3: Now, with a quick flip of the wrist, toss them puppies into your salad. Eventually you should have something like this (individual results will vary):


And that's it! No mess, no clean up, enjoy your salad like a boss.

Note, as an alternative to Step 3 you can substitute the salad for your own gaping mouth.
