What Makes Me Smile-part XVI


The word goofy makes me smile!

What does it mean, anyway?

Something silly? Funny? Unusually weird?

According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, the definition of “goofy” is…

being crazy, rediculous or mildly ludicrous.

That sounds about right.

And goofball.

 What is a Goofball?

Someone who does silly things, just because they can?

I live with a Goofball. AKA, The Captain, my husband.

It is almost impossible to get a picture of him that doesn’t show him making a goofy face.

I work with another goofball. He’s always singing.

Singing is not goofy, you say?

Well, it is when you sing it out of key and out of time.

Just being goofy.

My kids are goofy, at times.

My friends are goofy, at times.

And yes, I am goofy. Especially, if I have had an adult beverage or two. And the more adult beverages I drink, the goofier I get.

 I don’t drink adult beverages very often, for that reason.

See there…goofy, goofball, goofier.

Say it.

 See, it’s fun to say that word. Makes you smile just thinking it.

What comes to mind when you think the word goofy?

Mickey’s best friend?

A random act of silliness?

Or, something you’ve seen a total stranger do.


Who came up with that word anyway?

It’s just “goofy”.

I like that word……….”goofy”.

 When I hear that word, my ears perk up.

To me, it means a smile is surely on it’s way.

What’s making you smile this week? Something “goofy”, maybe?
