August Happiness Challenge -- Day 10

Friday's Happiness: Laughter! My oldest friend returned to Chicagoland on Friday afternoon and we attended the Fest for Beatle Fans together. It's a rather silly affair, I admit, and the nerdiness was emphasized because attendees of ComicCon were staying at our hotel, too! 
But oh, it was good to see her. I haven't laughed so hard in ages! It was all (here's that word again) silly, but it was joyful, too. Our favorite moment came when going through a teen magazine from 1964. Yes, of course, the Beatles were on the cover, looking young and sooooo cute. But a violator on the cover promised: "How YOU Can Be Their Girl" accompanying photos of (are you ready?) Rock Hudson, Jim Nabors and Richard Chamberlain. 
It was nice to just laugh about inconsequential things, to reconnect to someone I've known since Kindergarten, and (for a third time) be silly.

Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
