Losing Your Marbles?

This is just too funny not to share, I just heard this one today from a friend. It does concern losing your marbles and someone trying to remedy the situation. All I can say it was a new idea and well intended, too and like nothing I had ever heard anyone doing.

It happened with one of my friend’s co-workers to cheer her up and all since she had been having a rough few weeks. Both at the job and also a tiny bit at home, too…Her teenaged daughter has been acting up just a bit much these days. Long story there and not necessary to tell for this post. I personally never would have thought of this one but my friend’s co-worker presented her with a bag full of marbles. A note was enclosed that said “Just when you think you’re losing them all, pull out my little gift and you will find you really haven’t lost them all!” How wild is that, wonder how the co-worker thought of such a thing…I like it!

Losing all your marbles or just a few here and there is never a good thing after all, is it? Wonder wherever that expression came from anyway…It’s another way of saying losing it, going nuts and slipping a gear or perhaps two. At those sometimes stressful jobs I guess having your own stash of marbles would make you smile and probably laugh. It was just funny how my friend told the story, I hope she doesn’t get any ideas. I really don’t need a bag of marbles, because my life and work isn’t all that stressful. Maybe it is, I could perhaps just not be thinking it is…I am kidding! I would be the first one to admit I was being stressed out or having a rough time of it. But, thankfully not and telling Autumn this story she thought it was rather amusing, too but didn’t think she needed a bag of marbles either.

Well, either the Twinnies are just too laid back or we are in denial…Could it be? I know, it isn’t funny joking about these things. Because of course Autumn and I are both fine. I had to ponder about this marbles story and thought it was fun for sharing. Some of you kind readers maybe could borrow the idea and hand out bags full of marbles! Go ahead if you have a family member, friend or co-worker who is having a bad time, well do give it a whirl and see what happens! If you do, please do tell us how it goes! 😉 🙂

    Plus I can always tell them Gabby told me to gift it to them, i would love to see how they react to it 🙂

    • That is funny about you going bankrupt handing out bags of marbles Soma! 🙂 Oops, I didn’t even think that not everyone in the world has heard of “losing their marbles”, forgive me please. The thought of gifting them around did make me laugh quite a bit. I loved that my friend told me this story, her co-worker has a good sense of humor I thought. 🙂 Lol, you go ahead and tell people Gabby told you to gift them…They probably will say who is Gabby? She sounds like one wacky soul! 😉 🙂 Hugs

  2. Frantic me raising teenagers back in the late 80s was once handed a bag of marbles by their acolyte master at our church! I had totally forgotten about that until this post today. Maybe it is a tradition that has been around for longer than we think in some locations. I love this idea and will get a bag of marbles to have on hand for giving. Thanks!

    • That is something else, you got handed your own bag of marbles back when you needed it Granbee! 🙂 Maybe the tradition has been around for awhile. I had to smile about how you are now going to keep a bag of marbles on hand, it’s a fine idea…Thanks so much for telling me about your memories of those bags of marbles. 🙂

  3. I got to say, wow… wish I had this post about a year ago. “Bag of marbles” would have put some spine on a friend and which he really needed it at the time. But time seems to offer it in different way and all seems well :D.
    Loved this post….. had a good laugh listing down possible candidates for “bag of marbles” 😛

    • Thanks so much for stopping by to read this post Shilpa and also loving it. Thank you for your kind words, I appreciate it! 🙂 I also had to laugh about you saying you had a list of people who may need a bag of marbles. 🙂
