      What made me laugh this morning, and what always gets my heart in a 'right position'. Was a child. This little girl was trailing behind her mom, and it seemed that everything caught her attention. That three year old was very much in charge, and I don't think she even knew it, she was just care-free , as children should be. Wish we didn'l lose that ability to smile Brandon. Great question!

    My son, who is going camping for a couple of days with friends, just walked out of the house wearing a navy captains hat. 
    Mom: "Are you going to wear that hat"?
    Son:"Of course"
    Mom:" Why"
    Son: "Because I am captain of my car".

    Well..  Nothing yet.  I ran out of cream for coffee and had to lighten my coffee with a little bottle of chocolate milk aimed at preschool kids.  (I thought it might taste like mocha, but it just tastes like warm chocolate milk with coffee bitterness added to it.  hmm)  BUT, it's still just 7:45 a.m. here.  The day is young.  I imagine it will happen eventually before the day is over (and most likely only after I get some decent coffee).

    Being here on Hub Pages and reading other talented writers always makes me smile. Sharing the ones that really move me to chuckle or think. My family, my husband and my dog. Knowing that my cp is still in good shape makes me relieved too. You are right..it takes more energy to use your frown muscles than it does to smile! smile Keep smiling folks! smile

      Jo said it. "Keep smiling folks!"

      Keep on smiling and the world will smile with you, because a smile is something you can always give away with a pretty good chance of getting one or more in return.

      Random acts of happiness...pass it on!

    I got that coffee I mentioned previously.  It took until 6 p.m, but I got it.  Then, I smiled over a bunch of things; not the least of which was seeing an online comment by my daughter's fiance that said he feels incredibly lucky to have her in his life.  Gee.  If I'd seen that in the morning when all I had was coffee with chocolate milk in it (or else club soda), I might have smiled a lot earlier in the day.   smile

    Some creepy guy who was asking me for money asked me where I got my diamonds from.

    I was puzzled and asked him if he meant the fake diamond studs I was wearing.

    He replied "No, silly-- the diamonds in your eyes."

    I reflexively told him to shut up because he couldn't even see my eyes behind my sunglasses.

    He responded that I needed to smile.

    In the end, he didn't make me smile. I just developed the urge to punch him in the mouth.

    I smiled at my boss's joke though "Did you hear about my gay dwarf friend who just came out of the cupboard?"

    Today, I realized that I'm no content writer.  If I enjoyed it and really needed the money, maybe I would have lasted longer.  I turned down a content writing job that would pay me two bucks if I completed it.  I told the boss that I made more money illegally sorting tomatoes by the hour in the 115-degree Sacramento Valley heat when I was 13.  Yeah, Bud.  Back then, I made $2.10 an hour (the early 70s).

    This is where I start singing (with feeling), "Take this job and SHOVE it!!!"

    1. Lisa HW profile image82
      Lisa HWposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      I'm not either, Arlene.  I've done it when the right pay and right project has come along, but I've worked my way down to never doing that at all.    It's bad enough that I write stuff that doesn't particularly interest me offline (or at least away from the whole Internet-search thing).  And you're right.  The pay that's often offered to people for that work is a giant insult.   smile  (I made 2.10 an hour at a supermarket where I worked during high-school.  It was the late 60's, and I was sixteen.  roll)  (Sorry.  I didn't work all those years to get to that - or even the "big" $15 an hour to write about unbearable subjects.   hmm )

    Oh, Lisa!  I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your comments!  Thank you so much for your insights, too!

    Would you believe this same clown said that he would leave the job open for me, and it was my decision to take it or not???

    What???  Am I being tested for my patience, or what?

    Anyway, I have to laugh and smile over this incident.  Almost two years ago, I did have this project that lasted seven months.  It did pay more, but I got tired of the way the writers were treated.  But I did learn a lot about how content writing works.  No regrets there.  I did learn that these people don't care to hear what you have to say.  Tough.  I'll say what I feel.  There's no sense stuffing it.

    What can they do?  Fire me???  I have come to the point where I don't wanna do it anymore because it's no longer fun for me.

    I know now that all the signs point to me going back to working on my novel.  I will also keep writing for HubPages.  I've been here a year (this month!), so there's another milestone for me.

      I can't believe I've been hear over four-and-half years at this point; but the reason I started here was to have that chance to write what I wanted to write, or else just get away from some of the more formal stuff).  I could do that here (although I've always tried to "earn my keep" by trying to find some way to sort of make some of the subjects at least a shred useful in some "lame" way).  With everything that's gone on in the last year (since Panda), I'm just kind of thinking, "Hey.  Write whatever you want to write, and let the chips fall where they may.  I've been pretty dissatisfied with my "hybrid" style of writing, so I've got four-plus years of stuff I kind of hate.

      I've been very happy to earn what I've been earning in my "down time" writing, though.  It's a nice site.  I can't really see hopping around and starting "all new" in more places. It's fine.  I'm happy enough (considering it's a spare-time thing).  Sometimes I just stop thinking about where to take the spare-time stuff (since I'm already scrambling and worrying about where to take the non-spare-time stuff); and I'll just goof off for a couple/few weeks until I'm ready to write again.  hmm  I do other spare-time stuff too, and I definitely think that "eggs/basket" thing is important.  Since there's "no law" that says you can't take a break and then write (on here) again, it works well for me.  Happy First Anniversary.  (You'll probably be here for four or five more, no matter what you may think right now.   lol  )
