Two Words – Tickle. Fight.

Do you have those middle of the night thoughts that come out of nowhere but you promise not to forget so you can write it down when you wake up? There are so many thoughts I’ve lost from not writing them down right then and there BUT!! I had one last night that makes so much sense. With all the turmoil around the world, this thought seems to be the answer.

How many conflicts can be resolved and wars avoided with a tickle fight?


Obviously this is super childish but when’s the last time you were tickled and DIDN’T laugh? Now imagine two world leaders, Biden and Putin, for instance, in a tickle fight. By the end of it they’d be exhausted and come to some sort of common ground to end all the hostility. Don’t you think?

Next time I’m upset with someone, I’m going to start a tickle fight, even if it’s the woman in the checkout line in front of me using a check to buy her groceries.

Thanks for dropping in…
