    Everything is 5 times funnier

    when you're not supposed to laugh. The worst thing is that when people start losing their s**t I really want to laugh. well angry people are funny but they're going to get even angrier if they see me laughing at them! I used to do it in school too, that got me in trouble - the...

    Always in class. ALWAYS in the silent moments.

    Like people'll be talking about WW2's death toll or something and I'll just remember some reference or a post I read and start laughing like an idiot.

    Like moments when you can't stop laughing

    I was at my grandma's funeral,

    and while I was distraught by the death of one of my favorite people on this planet, the lady behind me just kept saying "yes lord" over and over and over. It was the way she kept saying it that I couldn't help but laugh. My cousins thought I had lost my mind as here I am...

    Its a personality trait I hate

    and don't know how to get rid of it. My son has it too. I can hear tragic news, and laugh. I can be confronted and accused severely, and laugh. I can be in a heated argument, and laugh. It always starts with a curling lip smile (which someone inevitably asks, "Why do you smile...

    I laughed at my grandmother's funeral.

    I was thirteen at the time. Looking back, I feel I couldn't process my grief and that's how it manifested.

    I laugh loudly at movies

    when no one else does, does anyone else? It's only when I find it genuinely funny but sometimes I feel like I'm on the spectrum.

    When They Fall

    I am horrible at laughing at people when they fall. I find it hilarious, and I cannot help it. Of course, I'm not mean about it and will help them up, but I can't help but laugh. I'm sorry in advance if you ever fall in front of me :)

    When I find myself in situations I never

    thought to be in, I have this urge to burst into laughter. So to be polite in respect to those who seem so intensely involved, I would suppress with difficulty the laughter that threatened to come out.

    I can't begin to tell one the amount of times I

    have either been the only one laughing, excused myself out of the room due to laughing, or been spoken to about my laughing. Good times.

    So I started to laugh

    when my cousin sang off key at my Great Aunt's funeral. I know it was a terrible thing to do but at the time it was funny as hell. He tried to reach a high note and cracked like a broken trumpet. To be honest my Aunt would have probably cracked up too.

    I always laugh or smile in situations

    that require ultimate seriousness. And I end up looking like a goof when I try to suppress my unexplainable amusement.

    I watched Django Unchained with my aunt

    I think the most recent incident I remember was

    when my boss told me, "Did you know that so-and-so's husband's cousin's father just passed away?" I didn't know how I was supposed to react because she said it in a tragic but weirdly excited tone... so I went for inappropriate laughter.

    When I was in group therapy,

    it didn't matter how serious a topic was, I could burst into a laughing fit at anytime. Needless to say, I got kicked out quite a few times...Oh well, better to laugh than to cry :)

    who was getting up and her chair squeaked like someone farted. I laughed out loud and everyone stared at me but I didn't care.😊

    Normally I am quite good at controlling myself.
