Another busy one this week – working, pub quizzing (we won!), book clubbing, last-minute shopping (why is it you can look everywhere for something, getting increasingly desperate, and then find it in Asda, of all places?) – so here’s a quick happy thought for the day 🙂
You know that feeling when you’re laughing so hard your stomach hurts, and you can’t breathe, and you start to cry a little bit, and then when you’re done you can’t actually remember what you were laughing about?
I love that feeling.
I remember at school, in an English lesson, getting the giggles with my friend Lorraine for absolutely no reason – it was something to do with a beam of light through a ceiling, I think; I know it meant nothing to anyone but the two of us, and our poor teacher eventually gave up trying to work it out and left us to it. That was probably a good fifteen years ago, but it still makes me chuckle.
A colleague and I only have to say the word ‘Ethiopia’ to each other and we start to laugh. (I’d like to clarify at this point that we’re not laughing at Ethiopia – we’re not horrible people.) We had a small misunderstanding in the pub about a year ago and then laughed for a solid half hour while everyone else looked on in mild concern.
Sometimes you need a bit of silliness; life’s too short to be serious all the time. And in case you need some help, try this. Or this. Or for pure ridiculousness – this (sorry if you end up singing the theme tune for the rest of the day, like I did).
“I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it’s the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It’s probably the most important thing in a person.” Audrey Hepburn
So if you want me to like you, you know what to do 😉
