Musak Munday … KT Oslin … How To Be Happy in Under 425 words.
Let’s face facts folks, “I am just too good looking for my height.” There I said it … I feel much, much better. That rumor has been floating around for quite sometime, and the fact is, “it is true.”

Having covered the ever elusive happiness factor on this Monday, I am now going to move onto this expression I heard the other day. “I was so upset, I was beside myself.” That is kind of intriguing, think about it.
You are beside yourself, is this, the out-of-body-experience that Shirley McClain was talking about?
I will let you know ….
