Laughing With You and At You

One of the reasons that I love my friends and family so much is because they are all an easy laugh. Laughing feels so good...physically, I mean. I feel myself feel better about most situations instantly after I laugh. The other night, I was lying in bed reading Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim by David Sedaris. I was laughing so hard no sound was coming out of my mouth and I was all by myself. Today, I found myself laughing at an infommercial about Saturday Night Live DVD collections. My brother used to say "Let it begin" everytime I would sit down to eat or watch TV when I was growing up, so today, when he said it, I laughed out loud.
Today, I was at a bridal shower where a woman was sharing a fact about laughing. Children laugh more than 200 times a day but the average adult only laughs 4 times a day. Who are these adults? They are not my kind of people. Maybe that is why I have a job where I hang out with people who laugh more than 200 times a day.

You are a lucky person to laugh so much. I am one of those unfortunate few who doesn't know how to laugh. I am always serious! I miss jokes... I am clueless when it comes to humor. I don't have a humorous bone in my body -- and when I do laugh -- my husband always stands and stares in surprise!

I so wish I could just be happy-go-lucky and laugh my heart out -- OFTEN! Lucky you : )
