Oookay did you miss me?

Okay so I lied about not posting for awhile but my mood just lightened and I have one incredible human phenomenon to thank...

Aren't you glad laughter is contagious?
Because it is. Whenever you hear somebody laughing, I mean really busting a gut, tears pouring from their eyes, barely able to catch their breathe, bent over for the hilarity of it all, it makes you smile a little bit and maybe even chuckle, wondering what could be so funny. Thats what happened at work today when two ladies started laughing like that and finished ten minutes later, out of breathe and surrounded by chuckling, curious onlookers. I never figured out what was so funny but that much laughter and smiles helped me to crack my fairly grumpy mood. In fact, in africa, a case of giggles got so out of hand at a school that it spread like wildfire through the whole student body, many of them having to be admitted to the hospital for observation. They just could not stop laughing. Somedays, that doesnt sound all that bad...

It is in fact that kind of laughter that keeps me sane on many of occassion. It is best when shared with someone, but sometimes, I will laugh at totally inappropriate moments as a way to deal with whatever major thing is facing me. That kind of laughter is healing in its very essence. :)

I like the moments you're talking about, but don't forget the amusement that comes from just straight up surreal stuff. Like this ad for a bowling lane the next town over from me...
"Do you like bowling? Lets play bowling. Breaking down the pins and get hot communication!"
