In times like these, it’s best to be like Phoebe from “Friends”

Do you know anybody who is constantly upbeat, perky, and completely nerve-racking?  If you have to think longer than four seconds, you are surrounded by too many uptight, mean-spirited people.  In an effort to shade ourselves from the doom and gloomy, we should all get to know someone like Phoebe from Friends.  Just think about it, how many times have you just wanted to go to a store in the mall and just yell, “Hi, everybody!” for no reason or even start singing “Smelly Cat” in a way that only Phoebe can sing it, obnoxiously!  Sure, just being spontaneous can have its downside, but it can be a lot more fun once you notice somebody repeating your obnoxious behavior.  The Phoebe complex is sure to rub off on everyone and it would be a great thing too.  Now Phoebe would never pass gas in a crowded elevator and laugh as she exists it, but she would be honest about something personal.  We all have at least one personal thing that we would all like to make disappear.  Phoebe would make light of that embarrassing moment by exposing it to others.  Before long, everybody is in on it.  That’s why Phoebe was such an integral character on Friends.  She was the magnet that attracted everyone.  Free-spirited, bohemian-like, Phoebe was a goddess of serenity whether she knew it or not.  If you don’t have a Phoebe in your life, which I find hard to believe, become your own Phoebe.  Go out and do something so hysterical, people will look at you like you have lost your mind.  One thing in particular you can do is wear a button that say, “I Kicked Somebody Today” or “I Know You’re Talking About Me.”  “Grandma got run over by a reindeer,” is sure to get the party started, especially in the summer.  Find your inner Phoebe.  Don’t let the status of our economy get you down.  Open up and say, “Ahhhhhhh…!”
