Christmas Countdown: Day 14

Today, dear Readers, I have my first (Christmas) giveaway. It not only allows you to burn pre-holiday calories, something we all can benefit from this time of year, but, it will boost your immune system and get the 'ol heart pumping without breaking a sweat or having to move one singlesolitary leg muscle. Oh and did I mention that no rules apply, you don't have to leave a comment, re-post this post, sign-over your firstborn, or bake my Christmas cookies for me? The verybest thing about this giveaway is that each and every one of you can win! Uh-huh. You're not dreaming, you don't have to pinch yourself. I'm not green with a pot of gold or a floating genie in a bottle. I'm just a little 'ol Texan who after reading that:

-the average pre-schooler laughs, smiles, or giggles more than three hundred times a day whereas adults thirty-five and over only laugh, smile, or giggle on an average of fifteen times a day

-folks smile less than half of what they think they do

-one minute of laughing so hard that you 'bout pee in your pants or cry your little eyes out gets your heart pumping the same as if you were to spend ten minutes on a rowing machine

-laughing relieves stress and boosts the immune system 

-and, last but not least, that you burn a whopping three and a half calories with onesinglesolitary rip-roaring belly laugh (that means laughing while eating a piece of chocolate makes those nasty calories evaporate into thin air where they should have been in the first place!)

decided to gift her lovely readers with a little laughter, free calories, and a healthy kick to the 'ol immune system. Click on the following for a good laugh. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did!

Happy Tuesday!
