Do you know a person who whistles? I can’t whistle worth a hoot, but my daddy could. When I was a kid it made me crazy because I wasn’t what you’d call a morning person. I’m more of one now since I discovered coffee. My dad got up in a good mood and started his morning routine by whistling. Many a morning I heard it and put my pillow over my head as I grumbled. Hey – sad but true.
Spring is when you feel like whistling even with a shoe full of slush. – Doug Larson
I don’t hear people whistle anymore. Did fathers forget to pass the trait along? Is the world just such a bleak and desolate place that there is no point to it anymore? Well, pardon me, but my parents lived in the days of the great depression – and those days were not so wonderful either. Daddy was a Veteran of WWII and he was a whistler back then too. Whistle your way through a war? Well – yeah!
He takes requests on twitter. Jus’ sayin’…
If doctors could just prescribe one hour of meaningful whistling every day for their depressed patients, the drug manufacturers would have a fit because their profits would plummet. They would no longer be selling folks Prozac and other mood enhancing drugs.
Seriously – even if you are like me and can’t whistle worth a plugged nickel – give it a shot today. It really does make you feel better. In my case it sounds horrible – but even that makes me laugh – and that’s still a good thing!
Whistling is less about perfect pitch and more about perfect attitude. – Linda Palmer
It’s not that we don’t live in very serious times, but I learned first hand that it’s about the attitude you face problems with that will help you come through better than you were before. I think the dwarfs in Snow White were on to something when they suggested the idea to Whistle While You Work, but I don’t think grumpy and sleepy really whistled. I think they must have faked it. There’s no way they could be that way if they had really whistled! Hmm… I should investigate that angle. Wink! 😉
