One of my earliest memories was reciting the poem, “If by chance you meet a frown, do not let it stay, quickly turn it upside down and smile that frown away.” It was before I could read so my father made pictographs for me. I got up in front of a large congregation in church and “read” it. It came with a drawing of a frowning face that you turned upside down and it became a smiling face. I thought I was reading directions for the nifty trick drawing. I never took it to be a recipe for life. That would be unhealthy. 😦
Word play can be fun but not a good idea when it comes to solving serious problems. Nevertheless a bit of fun can reduce stress. So can cake.
