Day 66- ABBA

Today I tested a theory I have held for a long time.

Question: What is a surefire trick to turn sadness into happiness?

Hypothesis: It is impossible to be or to remain sad while listening to ABBA.

Experiment: Today I was feeling a little down about Tom traveling this week.  Since being away from my husband makes me about the most sad I ever really get, I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to test my hypothesis.  I watched the following video:

Results: I'm smiling and dancing (I'm a dancing queen, in fact) and singing.  While I miss my husband already and cannot wait for him to return, I do enjoy hanging out with my favorite Swedish buddies ever so much.  They really do know how to cheer me up :).  I will certainly  be a "Super Trouper," and listen to them instead of calling out an SOS.  I think everyone could use a little more ABBA in their lives.  I do, I do, I do, I do, I do.  Mamma mia!


P.S. I saw Mamma Mia! on Broadway with my whole family.  I know, I know, how lucky can one girl get?  It was incredible.  If listening to a little ABBA can cure one person's sadness at any given time, imagine what would happen if we sat the whole world down to see the play.  World peace, anyone? 

Thank you, ABBA, you made my day.

I agree, you can not stay down when Abba is around. To keep Kylie and Maverick (Callies kiddos) happy and busy, I put Mamma Mia in the dvd player and viola, we're all dancing queens and kings. They have watch this video at least 100 times and are entranced by it. lol
