I was not being very professional when I browsed through my Facebook newsfeed whilst in the office. This one picture had me stop my incessant scrolling.
My colleagues looked over from their cubicles, perplexed.
I was laughing. First, silently. And then my whole body shook. I succumbed to my laughter and openly roared in the office. Clearly, I am the epitome of professionalism.
What was it that got me laughing so hard?
Why was it that I chose to make a complete fool out of myself?
Well come on, anyone with an ounce of humour would find this hilarious.
Even so, did it really warrant such a huge reaction?
Perhaps not for you; but for me, YES!
The guy on the right is my hero. I have never related to anything more than this (at this point of my life). I have written about my body image issues before. This man just trivialised the very notion of perfection and vanity; the need to be physically sculpted; the need to look like a model; the insecurities that come along with it. We need more of this in our lives. Acceptance – of ourselves and every other regular joe with a regular physique.
There I go again.
I took something hilarious and psychoanalysed it with my own bullshit.
I better stop sucking the fun out of funny.
