It is funny how some memories can just pop into your mind out of the blue. The other day the memory came back to me of when I popped my stress ball. Yes, those little round spongy balls, that I used to think could never break.
I shared on this blog a couple years ago about when our family was going through a very emotional court case. You, my dear readers, were so supportive and I deeply appreciated it. I will say something that I repeated back then, if I never walk through court room doors again, it will be too soon!
When I was sitting on the stand and testifying my stress ball popped! Sand poured out all over my lap, as my ball looked like a little popped balloon. My attorney and my sisters who were the first to see me after I got off the stand, started laughing when I held up what was left of my ball. I told the attorney that they should think about investing in stronger ones.
While court was very emotional this memory always makes me laugh, for I remember sitting on the stand thinking, “Seriously! Did I really just pop my ball!” It really did lighten the moment for me!
I wonder if the following animals had their “stress balls” pop as well, or what do you think has caused the expression on their faces? Enjoy, and remember even if your stress ball pops, you can give your family and friends a really tight hug. I promise, they won’t pop! 🙂
