When was the last time you had fun? Would you recognize fun if you saw it? Consider these words from that noted philosopher, Spongebob Squarepants:

F is for Friends who do stuff together.

So maybe it’s time to consider inviting your friends to join you for a little fun. Just about anything can be fun if you have the right attitude and you can celebrate anything you want “anywhere and anytime at all.”
