Common Sense: Humor can be found everywhere

Finding humor in situations that aren’t necessarily meant to induce laughter often times will bring forth heartfelt chuckles. This is not a task easily mastered. An individual must first possess a sense of humor slightly off center.
It is a skill that can be nurtured, but is most effective when it is gifted by heredity.
I do my best to hone this skill, but it is a work in progress. There have been several instances lately where practice has resulted in at least a giggle for me.

There are exceptions, of course. One such incident occurred recently when, for whatever reason, I was trying unsuccessfully to remember a deceased pet's name.
In my mind's eye was a vivid image of the gorgeous, smoky grey feline of enormous proportions. He had beautiful eyes and the sweetest countenance. He was affectionate and a cat whose company I enjoyed immensely.
But for the life of me, I couldn't say his name.
