I’m under the impression that laughter truly is the best medicine. It’s funny how easy it is to get in a good mood just by smiling. Once a week in our office, someone plays a full comedy routine, and we all sit back and giggle. I want to share our good times with you, so every Wednesday, I’ll be giving you a different stand-up routine. Sit back, act like you’re working, and enjoy today’s laugh-inducing video!
