Good morning ladies! I was recently asked what was the funniest movie I’ve seen. I had to take some time to think about it. It made me think about when is the last time I truly laughed. That moment between you and a friend where you both look at each other because something you both saw or heard triggers the same reaction and you both get the “joke”. “Don’t look at me”one friend says to the other because you know if you look at each other the laugh that is stuck in your throat will come out and disturb the peace. So you both chuckle under your breath and the chuckle turns into a grunt. Both your bodies start to shake from trying to suppress the laugh that is bubbling up to the surface until you both cannot contain it any longer and the laugh releases from your mouths and hysteria sets in where you both throw your bodies on the floor letting the extreme joy of the feeling of laughter takes over. The kind of laugh where you grab your bellies and you cry so hard the tears roll down your cheek while you choke out “stop, I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe”! One of the joys of life. It’s orgasmic. That’s one intention I have this year. Is to laugh more. What memory do you have where you laughed so hard you cried? (Oh and a movie that made me laugh…Rat Race with Cuba Gooding Jr.) ?? Love S
