If you ain't LAUGHING, Then you ain't LIVING


So this is kind of a random post, but I watched "The Bucket List" the other night & one of the things on Morgan Freeman's list of things to do before he dies was to laugh until he cries. While even though I think that this is a great goal to have, I also thought that it was kind of sad, because if he had made that a goal, then obviously he had never done it before in his life. I know that it was just a movie, but as I have mentioned before in my blogging, Laughing 'til I cry is one of my favorite things in the whole wide world! I never feel as refreshed & rejuvenated as when I've just laughed my heart out! It's the best feeling in the world. Plus I have always felt that laughing bonds me with other people somehow. And as many of you know, I am the type of person who if I am trying to re-tell a story & I think that it is funny, I can barely get through the story because I am laughing so hard & no one can even understand what I am saying. So then they look at me like I am crazy & then that makes me laugh even harder! I apparently am also the person who thinks things are really funny when others around me don't find them as humorous. In that case I always think that it is just their loss for not seeing the humor in it & therefore missing out on the opportunity to laugh. So here is to Laughing a little more & a little harder every day!:)

We need to hang out more. I feel exactly the same way. Of course when I am laughing and telling these hilarious stories it is usually at the hospital in the middle of the night with my other crazy co-workers who whether or not it is just delirium are laughing right along with me.

Love the laughing. I wish I could do more of it. It seems like since I've had kids I don't get to spend my time "laughing 'til it cries" with other people that like to do it. I did do this a little over a week ago so I know it is still in my life. :) It's great stuff.

We need to hang out. Beware, I have been known to laugh at very inappropriate (and otherwise serious, reverent or even sad) times, but then I just laugh harder trying to be serious. It is just a big mess.

I love how you always laugh! you are so fun to hang out with. I love all your stories, you and Mike are both hilarious. you look beautiful in that picture. Flying spiders that chased me might be the worst thing that could possibly happen to me!

Laughing is overrated. Just like how you were probably laughing your guts out when you "contributed" to my blog last night. By the way - does the phrase "DEAD MEAT" mean anything to you?

I have many memories of laughing with you until we are crying and they are some of the best. Thanks for the memories. (hee, hee)
