I am thankful for moments where I laugh so hard I can't stop, and the harder I try to stop the more I laugh.
There are a million bajillion quotes about laughter out there and most of them are corny and a little silly but I am a sucker for them anyways. A few ones I found were
"Laugh as much as you breath and love as long as you live"
"Nothing shows a man's character more than what he laughs at"
"Always remember to be happy because you never know who's falling in love with your smile."
Today I laughed harder than I have in a long time, all because of this character:
|Although both make me chuckle I'm talking about the character on the left|
Her name is Brittany Bly and she can make me laugh harder than anybody I know. We have had a lot of memories together from high school orchestra and early morning seminary, to mishaps while texting and summer daycamp. I love this girl to pieces. Today she had me laughing so hard I got a case of the giggles and just couldn't stop. I love those moments, the moments when my ab muscles are sore because they have been contracted for five solid minutes as I have been trying to compose myself. It reminded me of the time we did laughter yoga in my Theories to Therapeutic Recreation class. For thirty minutes we sat in a circle and we looked at each other and just laughed. It is amazing the power of laughter, you should try it.
All of this laughter reminded me of my all-time favorite game, which happened to be recorded during my Rock Climbing class field trip and has become one of my favorite videos to watch. I thought for sure I was going pee my pants. (Thanks Daniel for being such a great sport!)
I guess it is really true, laughter is the best medicine!
P.S. I know this is a weird confession but I on my IGoogle homepage I have two pet turtles for some reason it makes me feel more domestic and caring even though logically I know that there is no purpose for them. I often play with them before I go to bed and make sure they get enough exercise. Perhaps it helps me reminisces about the days of my youth when I had a monkey giga pet and I kept it alive for 32 days. The turtles are 10 times better though because I don't have to feed them and when I am tiered of playing with them I close my laptop. Just thought the world would want to know about my abnormal obsession with my two pet turtles. I haven't named them yet and am open to suggestions.
