FRIDAY FUN

I found this little piece of too much fun on Grandpa’s blog. He is an amazing poet who truly is a word mechanic. If you’ve never visited Grandpa, you don’t know what you’re missing. I, myself, am terrible with poetry. Well except that one about Nantucket. *wink* But Grandpa is a master. Today however he posted this very fun video that I just couldn’t help stealing.

I would take the stairs every time! Wouldn’t you?


I just realized this post might qualify for Otin, Hit40 and RxBambi's Happy Hour Friday. Watching people on these stairs really made me happy. :-)




Hugs,
Smart Mouth Broad

I LOVED that. I'd definitely take the stairs...in fact, that's about the only thing that could persuade me to take the stairs...

I'm pitiful, I know.

"Fun can change behavior for the better. We call it the fun theory."

This will be my weekend mantra.

And hell yeah. I'd take the stairs. I'd be a jumping.

Like Pseudo, I'm going to make the fun theory my mantra, too! I LOVE the idea!

Arkansas Patti said...

Since I don't have to work, I am adopting the "fun theory" a daily approach.
That is priceless. Did you notice, no obese folks over there?

Linda said...

Pseudo's got the right idea! Thanks SMB for posting this. I usually do take the stairs but I would absolutely take these!

There are stairs like this in the Museum of Science in Boston. Really fun.
Love this. :-)

SA was fun this am. I've got to steal video put on FaceBook. What could you do to make your desk more fun to clean off LOL

Reader Wil said...

Now that's a great idea! He or she who invented this is a genius!

otin said...

Pastor Sharon said...

Yes. . . I'd like to order the piano stairs for the 13 stairs in my house! Life is a symphony and it starts at my home!

I'd like to play the melody when I come down to start my day and when I go up to go to sleep! Lovely way to start and end the day. . .
with the Music of life!

I think I'll go create a masterpiece! LOVELY!

Hit 40 said...

I do we get some fun therapy in OHIO?? I need volkswagon to come pimp out some stairs here too!!!

Fun does change behavior. If you have fun in math class, the kids enjoy being there and learn more!!! True story!!

Hit 40 said...

And thank you for the shout out to Otin, Bambi and I. Your very thoughtful.

Tony Letts said...

Great fun! Well done VW & thanks SMB

Debbie said...

What a great idea and concept for life in general~everything in life should be more fun...don't ya think? I would be trying to play songs with that set of stairs...great exercise but possibly annoying for passers by! Loved it...thanks Smart Mouth.:) Hey...did I offend you or something? You never come by the plains anymore....:(:(:(:(...that's me feeling sorry for myself.:(..and again.

Gaston Studio said...

What FUN! I take the stairs a lot but they'd probably have to ban me from this one what with all the fun I'd be having!

Auntie, aka Coco's Mom said...

hey girl,
yes, the FUN Theory also applies to my job as school librarian. I try to make reading fun for my students!
What a great video clip!!!
BTW
Thanks for Friday's Smart Ass!
Woot!

Beth Niquette said...

I'd take the stairs, too. (grin) Hurrah for having fun! Thank you, dear girl, for your encouraging comments--coming from you they mean so much.

I LOVE your new blog pic, by the way. Have a wonderfully delightful weekend!

Watching people on stairs makes you happy? You sound fat.

Midlife Mama said...

This is great!! What a fun idea.

And what's up with The Crap Blog Detective? Sounds like someone sucked the fun right out of him. Wow.

As I've always said: I may be fat, but you're ugly. I can lose weight.

Heh heh

Erin P said...

It made me happy too! Thanks!!

atiredwife said...

I'd absolutely take the stairs ... and would try to play a little song.

It'd be interesting if they keep the camera up and follow if people eventually go on back to the escalator.
