    I am a relatively quiet person,

    but when it comes to humor, im usually the first in tears. I am a genuine person and would love to get to know anyone better.

    ... So there I was at the bar.

    Watching the news on the tele... Remember when they showed the lions noshing down on the giraffes? While the other bar patrons were quiet, seemingly horrified at the images ... I uncontrollably laughed my *** off ... And I've got a big voice! :-)=)

    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 have gotten into a lot of serious trouble

    for laughing for no apparent reason at serious times. I don't regret doing that, and I understand it as another way of expression. It could also be a way of expressing spite over a conflicting issue by freely mocking at authority or order. I think that's okay.

    I always have been. I don't deal with

    situations where I shouldn't be laughing or smirking well. Anxiety makes me smile when I should not. Sometimes that does not go over well like when at funerals and situations like that.

    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 :)

    I sometimes laugh when someone gets in trouble

    or when the teacher gets mad. I can't help myself but laugh. When people move suddenly and concentrate really hard(musicians and conductors), I laugh. I also laugh when it is really quiet in a room or car when the radio isn't on and no one is talking.

    I giggle. A lot. And it's usually

    when I'm not supposed to be laughing. In kindergarten a boy was making funny faces during the pledge of allegiance, and, unfortunately, I laughed. The teacher scolded all of us because she had no idea who it was, and I got off scot free, but I wasn't always so lucky XD
