Laugh a Little–and Don’t be a Grump –Dave’s Diary

They made a movie about it called Grumpy Old Men. They even made a sequel. Grumpiness and old age seem to go together.  Think Clint Eastwood growling at kids to “get off my lawn.”  But folks do not start out as sourpusses– they get grumpy as they age. A recent study reveals that grumpiness begins at age 52 and mushrooms as people get older. The least cranky humans are the babies, who laugh an average of 300 times a day. But by the time they have grown into teenagers, the chuckles have plummeted to just six daily. Folks over 60 laugh a sulky 2 and a half times every 24 hours.

And it is no wonder the older men are usually portrayed as grouches because guys tend to be a lot crabbier than gals. Don’t want to be grumpy? Laugh more! Want to laugh more? Listen to the Morning News 6-9 weekdays on news Talk KIT. We take laughing seriously!
