We fail to use humor to our advantage and often use it in the wrong way. But it remains a certain aid in restoring us to wholeness and fullness, A story made the rounds in the "good ole days" about what happened :,in a general sto,re down in Florida. It ,seems the store proprietor had a barrel sitting inthe middle of his store which wa used by a hen for its roosting ,place.' A eat brought a pair of newborn kittens into the sto,re and dropped them next to that barrel. The store owner, thinking he would have a little fun out .of the old chicken, picked up the little kittens and ,put them in her nest. When the chicken came back to the nest, it looked at the kittens for a moment then proceeded to sit herself down on top of them. .A patrolman who came into the tore was directed over to the barrel by the owner. "Pick her up," said the owner pointing to the chicken. The officer on about their business. In a little while a small freckle-faced nine-year-old :boy ' walked in. Wanting to have some more fun out of the un- usual situation, the store owner winked ,t the policeman and said to the youngster, "I will give you a stick of candy if you will get the eggs from under the chic, ken and bring them to me." The lad went over to the barrel, , picked up the chicken, and siood motionless; his eyes grew largo and an expression of .shoek ap- peared on hm face. Then he tu,rned to face the store owner and exclaimed, "Mister, I done et my laat egg}" Well. it doe.s us all good to use those few muscles of our face which 'bring a smile o,r a grin.
