I laugh a lot. It’s all so funny! Smile, grin, chuckle, belly laugh. I can be washing the dishes and burst out laughing at something that someone said last week.
I laugh at myself, too. I really get a kick out of myself and the zany things I do. Yesterday I was feeling so good after swimming that when I got into the car I started to make up a rap song. “Walk on! Walk on!” So the song went. Pumping and swaying, I was having so much fun making up new verses that I missed my next errand. That made me laugh even more. I have a friend who is skeptical whenever I get popcorn at a movie after the time that I spilled it all over me and into the hooded jacket of the person in front of me. I spent part of the movie quietly trying to clean it out of her hood. It’s a good thing that I left out butter and chocolate chunks that I have been known to put in popcorn.
I can create bizarre food combinations. After jaw surgery, when I could only eat pureed food, I made a smoothie with avocado, carrots and fish to get fat and protein into one meal. It was so awful that I thought of writing a book entitled “Green Pudding is Gross!” I’ve made up marching dances to holiday songs and chased geese off my front lawn wearing a black raincoat and swinging a broom. My kids consider it one of the funniest things they have ever seen.
Do you laugh at yourself? Want to share some of those things? C’mon, it’s fun!
