Love creating fun

I LOVE making people smile. It’s what I do on 4MK and when I’m out and about. This week I wanted to see how many people I could get to smile and I reckon I won the jackpot. It started when I was doing my regular volunteering at Meals on Wheels on Shakespeare Street. I walked in with a pink wig on my melon (pictured right). Sure I was getting ready to wear it last Friday night for the annual pink basketball game which was postponed, but I wore it anyway.

I LOVE making people smile. It’s what I do on 4MK and when I’m out and about.

This week I wanted to see how many people I could get to smile and I reckon I won the jackpot.

It started when I was doing my regular volunteering at Meals on Wheels on Shakespeare Street. I walked in with a pink wig on my melon (pictured right). Sure I was getting ready to wear it last Friday night for the annual pink basketball game which was postponed, but I wore it anyway.

The reaction was, well how can I say this politely? It was bloody fantastic. There were wolf whistles, laughs, requests for my number and photos, all in the space of five minutes. I’ll take it as a win in my books.

The smiling challenge had legs so I had to continue it further. During the week I gave my regular plasma donation with my pink wig on. That gave quite a few people even further excuses to smile so another win in the Rob book, for sure.

I even had the bold idea to try and track down some of our lesser known individuals who’ve been stealing cars and torching them. I thought if I could find them with my pink wig on they may see the world in a different way. With a smile. I couldn’t find them. I’ll keep looking.

You know life can be tough right now. Money is tight, there’s bills to pay like our rates, which is more expensive than my own Barina is worth. Distraction from all this with a smile or three has got to help right? I hope so.

BTW I’m writing this while dressed in my pink suit and wig at the Dudley Denny City Library. Security is coming over to talk to me.
