Fun added

After my last post, I think you forgot the fun!, I got some interesting comments and emails. Let me assure you, they all made me laugh! But Deborah has a good point here:

“Nancy always brings the fun. How could you forget the fun, Nancy?!”

Let me explain. No, that will take too long. Let me sum-up: the quote from I think you forgot the fun! was completely pulled out of context. Which is what — I thought — made it so funny. The original conversation went a little like this:

Me: I’m just doing it for the fun of it. And if it turns out not to be fun, then I’m not going to do it because that’s why I’m doing it: for the fun.

Preston: Sounds good. I mean, if it’s not fun then I think you forgot the fun Nancy.

So Deborah, no, I didn’t forget the fun. I never forget the fun. In fact, I add the fun. One of my favorite movie quotes is delivered by Sirius Black in the fifth Harry Potter movie: “What’s life without a little risk?” But, if I may (which I maybecause this is my blog after all), I prefer my version better:

“What’s life without a little fun?”

And I’ll tell you the answer: BORING!

So if you don’t think getting water thrown on your face in the wee morning hours while you’re still dreaming about devouring the perfect ice cream sundae is fun, well, at least I thought it was fun.

Flying pigs: making life a little less boring.

So, let that be a lesson to you. If you’re doing something for the fun of it, don’t forget the fun!
