Ever over hear a conversation and just want to bust up laughing but you know if you did it would give away that you were listening?
I went to get my morning ice tea and overheard the following conversation this guy was having with a I presume a friend on the other end of his phone. (At least I’d hope it was a friend due to the nature of the conversation).
“Dude, you aren’t gonna believe this! I was sitting on the toilet texting my girl. I guess I was there for way to long. When I got up my legs were so numb and next thing I knew I was on the ground….
Nah dude, I did get my pants up first!”
OMG, got to love it! Maybe he was trained at an early age like this kid…
Have a great week everyone!
~~Till We Laugh Again~~
Let’s face it, we all do it. We all lie about it. And we might as well come clean.There is no shame.
A friend was telling me how she scuffed up her knees when she went flying when trying to out run someone. I pictured her getting her top half too far ahead of her feet and then gravity took it from there. Face plant. (LOL – sorry, laughing just picturing it again – arms out, rolling around a few times, maybe a somersault or two). I told her I have been there so many times (I’m the family klutz). Even when we are the ones falling, we can’t help but laugh through the pain. Many a time I just sat there laughing my butt off thinking of the site I must have made.
Those around us want to bust a gut but we yell at them that they better not laugh at us. So while there is genuine concern, the belly ache is just dying to be released. You can laugh and care at the same time. It’s freaking funny.
Slap stick has been a staple of our comedy for years. We love for people to fall down, bang into walls, hit someone over the head. Yet for some reason, we let those embarrassing moments cause us to scream “Are you laughing at me?” and we sheepishly go “No, not at all” (even though our soda that just shot out our nose gave us away).
One day I was making a large drink for someone and knocked it over, spilling it all down my shirt and leg. I was so ticked off (and cold as it was a frozen drink) and we were busy and it made this huge mess. The guy I was working with just looked at me ready to die laughing but thought it might be safer for him to just look away. I looked at him and said “It’s ok, if it wasn’t me I’d be dying too.”
So I say in 2012 as part of our laugh a day, we embrace our truth. Yes! I am laughing at you. I”m sorry you got hurt, but that shit was funny!
