L - is for Laughter
When people are laughing,
they're generally not killing each other.
You may have noticed that I prefer humor and laughter to more serious subjects. Laughter and a humorous approach to life is important to me. It is how I communicate best.
I wasn't born with a particularly sophisticated sense of humor. Our family didn't have much to laugh about. But when I met the man who is now my husband ... I was instantly drawn to his witt and ability to make you laugh. It was a very important trait a person I hoped to spend my life with. We have had many many belly laughs together. And thankfully, he has passed that sterling trait on to both our children.
I sincerely believe the Alan Alda quote says it all. If we had more laughter in our world, we wouldn't be killing each other.
So I will end the posting with a joke - one that made me double over in laughter years ago when I was about 20. I remember telling this joke to my parents. I could hardly get it out for all my chuckling. Once I told the joke, I noticed they were still staring at me - you know, like waiting for the punch line which I had already delivered. When I pointed it out - that the punch line had past, they tried to recover, tried to join in with a forced laugh - lamely as I remember - and I am sure they were wondering had I slipped off my rocker.
So I am hoping better from you guys. Here goes!
