Fun on a Friday: why you and I love going to the theater.

A study was recently released in the UK that just proved what you and I already knew . . . going to the theater actually makes you happier.

Yep, you can read all about it here, but according to this survey of iPhone users and their contentment levels, the London School of Economics has concluded that their peeps are happiest when:

  1. Having sex
  2. Exercising
  3. Visiting the theatre

And . . . uh . . . I don’t even know how to comment on that, so, let’s just say it out loud one more time, ok?

  1. Having sex
  2. Exercising
  3. Visiting the theatre

I can see billboards now . . . “See a show . . . it’s just like doing it.”

Ok, I went too far, didn’t I?  There was a line, and I just crossed over it.    But you were all thinking it, so don’t even try to say you weren’t.  And hey, it’s Friday, cut me a little slack.

Enjoy your weekend, all.  And according to the Brits, to really enjoy it, you should do one of the three things mentioned above.

I’ll let you pick which one.  And no, for the first time since I started this blog, I do not want comments about which one you are doing.
