Addicted to Laughing

I like laughing. A lot. Loud, quiet, sneaky or trying-so-hard to hold it in but it bursts out instead laughing. I also like laughing until my face hurts but I can't stop smiling. I don't like laughing that leads to tooting....because you're the thing that's funny....I'm just kidding that's funny too. You have never truly experienced laughing until you have lost some control of your bowels. I think that's why I married my husband, he makes me laugh until it hurts, that's how I work out my abs. I think I'm a funny girl....(whenever those two words come together I do think of Barbra Streisand). People say, "You're so funny," even when I don't mean to be. I like to keep things light-hearted and upbeat which is ironic because I was such an angry angry......must keep dark side closed.....grrr.

Anyway, this might just be a girl thing, but about two weeks ago I stayed up really late with my sister and my cousin talking and laughing about old stories and deep dark secrets. No, I'm not sharing secrets or stories, but we were laughing hard but quietly, like when you have to bury your face in a pillow. Those were good times. Laughing so hard that you get a headache and staying up so late that parts of your body decide to shut down and you have to figure out a way to get to bed.

Here are a few things that are guaranteed to make me laugh:
- Baby Sagittarius singing, "Simply Irresistible"
- Crotchety onery old people (I love you Gramma).
- Mechanic Hubby
- Various television shows
- tickling (which I actually do not like. I don't like laughing involuntarily).

If I was in a horrible situation, I would rather laugh than cry, because crying will get you nowhere but with laughing you get free endorphins. I wish I could hi-five someone right now. Up top!


  1. Laughing's the world's best therapy.

  2. Amen sistah! Life is too short to be crabby. Besides, I DO think you are hilarious. I bow to your awesomeness.

    Laugh on, babe!

  3. I don't generally laugh till I toot, but I will confess to laughing until I snort... accomplishes the same thing, right? More laughing :-)

  4. you are really funny! you have a charming sense of humor. i don't say charming because i'm trying to sound like english, but just because charming fits kind of what i mean, not only do you make other people laugh, but i love that you laugh at my jokes too, nothing is more awkward than me laughing my head off at EVERYTHING someone says, and then NOT have them laugh at the irresistible hilariousness of what i say in return :P

  5. p.s. i hope you enjoy watching the WHOLE sound of music movie along with special features on your flatscreen lol
