Laughter always makes us feel better. I know certain people in my life really make me laugh. But there are moments when laughing is NO laughing matter. I have a bad habit of laughing when im not suppose to...and because of that it makes me laugh more!
From the time i was a kid in school i got in trouble for laughing. On one ocassion me and my best friend started laughing in class. The teacher said if we did not stop we would be sent to the principals office...wrong thing to say..it only made us laugh more! Down at the principals office the secretary asks..."why are you girls here"..we laughed so hard we couldnt even talk...she made us sit in opposite corners til we stopped.....which took another 15 minutes to calm down. When in the principals office we had a laughing fit again....needless to say he was ticked...and we had a detention after school for it.
Once when i was working...the girls got called into our bosses office. He had a tendency to purse his lips when he talked. Right before walking in one of my co-workers comments..."i wonder if he will purse his lips in the meeting". Well he did! I started to giggle...and im fighting it hard....i know im about to have a laughing fit. My co-workers glance at me in the meeting and before you know it there struggling NOT to laugh! I began to laugh uncontrollably...tears streaming down my face..i try to think of something sad to stop to no avail! I literally had to leave in the middle of the meeting. Later i had to humbly apologize to my boss for the disruption..explaining that someone told me a joke right before i walked in!
The other day i was sitting on my front porch with a good friend of mine. My neighbor across the street saw me...she headed towards us...i mumbled to my friend.."please please don't let her come over and talk". Well she did.......and me and my bud started laughing so hard...we could not stop!
One time i had to go to a funeral..on the way there i told my friend..now we can not have a laughing fit when we get there ( it was a funeral for a distant relative of a friend). After giving our respects to the family, we sit down...she looks at me..i look at her.....and the laughing begins.........we had to pretend we were crying!
It seems i am always getting myself into jams for laughing when im not suppose to! Have you ever laughed at the wrong time?
Laughing when you should NOT!

- I Love to laugh. The laugh that hurts your stomach. The laugh that threatens to have you wet yourself. The laugh that makes you literally drop to your knees as you can't stand up or walk. (Like the guy in the casino with the fan blowing at me)
There are many times when I laughed I shouldn't of.
Once, I was at a funeral as well. It was all somber and people were paying their last respects. This woman walks up and as she is sniffling, when suddenly the heel on her shoe broke. Wobble... wobble...Like she is drunk, arms flailing...
Down she goes. Right on her keister.
Now mind you she wasn't hurt, except her pride. But she took one look at her shoe and busted out crying harder than she had been crying before over the departed. Must of been her favorite pair of shoes. I let out a laugh that was much to LOUD. I had to actually leave the room, and could not return for several minutes as that scene kept running thru my mind and made me laugh all over again. (Just to let you know, I was NOT the only one laughing.) I think in a serious situation like a funeral our bodies take over and release the stress any way it can.
I have a friend who wears a wig do to medical reasons. Well we were minding our own business one day and we get rear ended, a fairly good bump. Off flies her wig, right into the back seat in my lap. I'm telling you there was nothing funny about that situation, But I busted out hysterically. The look on her face from the impact, and then to see her grabbing her head and become aware she had just lost her wig, was too much for me. I picked it up and threw it to her "Here, I believe this belongs to you." Then she started laughing too. Then I laughed harder.
Laughter is a wonderful gift....
- Hi PMM,
You crack me up about the woman with the heel...........i would havd died laughing. Someone who trips or falls is another moment of complete hysterics.
I remember once when i was a teenager...my mom was coming down the stairs that led into our living room. It was a flight of about 12 stairs...she tripped on one of the stairs...and bounced on her booty down the next 5 steps like a ping pong ball.
Now i knew she was not hurt or any danger....and i will tell you why. As she bounced down each step...she looked down dead at me to see if i was laughing at her. She gave me a look of ...don't you dare laugh.......that was it...i think i laughed a half hour after that.
Another time we were coming out of the grocery store and she tripped in the parking lot.......bags flying.....fruit rolling down the street...she sits on the ground unconcerned about the groceries or cars coming. Her concern...........lookin up at me to see if i was laughing...and of course i was!
- Lmaoooo if we are sick...at least its a fun sickness girl!
Oh my goodness, i'm so guilty of this..
I get into so much trouble for laughing.. and the shameful looks
only make me laugh harder, its like a disease i'm stricken with
But i just can't help it.. its like i'm gonna need
Laughers Anonymous, for reals Lips.. are we sick?
- oh the things that go through your head when u try to keep from bursting out loud in laughter...it starts with the little chirps i let out...and as soon as i think "i wonder if ppl know i'm laughing"...i let out this honk from my nasal passage...and then another one...frantically i bite down...so all i can hear are little sounds of hiccups on rapid fire....and don't ask me why..but i thinketh again "can they tell???"....this time it's all over...chirp chirp...honk honk.......only escape...i make like i'm about to unload a huge load and run for the washroom...and let it all out...the laughter (the load was fake)...and when i return..i never go back to my seat - standing at the back is actually the best seat in the house
