Chances are very good that if I know you, we have laughed together on several occasions.My friend Erin once told me that it's "very satisfying" to make me laugh.
(Of course, I giggled at this.)
She took this photo:
I've laughed in hospitals and hospices, in funeral homes, in counseling offices, in classrooms while teaching and learning.
I find laughter a beautiful gift and a glorious tool in life; for shaving the edge off of awkwardness, for shining tiny beams of light - however momentary - into dreary circumstances.
And sometimes, because it's the only thing to do.
