i was at work the other day,
and an old man came in.
he ordered a cheeseburger.
and then as he waited for it to be made he started whistling.
he whistled "the first noel".
being the annoying parker's girl that i am i said,
"are you whistling a Christmas song?!"
and he just smiled and said "i don't know what i'm whistling, but whatever i'm whistling,
it makes me happy.
when you get to be my age, you learn to only use your time doing things that make you happy"

i want to learn that at my age.
and only do things that make me happy.
because life's too short to live it any other way.

love, laura
