    When someone randomly suspects me of doing

    something suspicious (simple things like leaving a door unlocked, unplugging the toaster, spilling a drink on the floor and not cleaning it up)... I immediately smirk and laugh on the inside. I laugh because their seriousness over looking to blame me is hilarious. Sometimes I...

    Laughing inappropriately just kills me sometimes

    but I love it. I currently work in a psychiatric hospital and I had one of my fits during a spiritual meeting with some patients. We were meeting at the T.V room so we moved the furniture around so that everyone could fit and we had blocked off the hallway with a table which is...

    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...

    I laugh when I'm in a situation I wasn't

    prepared for, such as being awkward, surprised, made uncomfortable, etc.. I remember taking on a job as a stage manager for a show that I hadn't researched at all. Well, needless to say, when the third line in the script was a description of using a spinal column to beat someone...

    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 :)

    Whenever a funny idea pops into my head,

    I just start laughing. Today that happened at the dentist's office. Someone once told me if I kept doing that people would think I was mental, so I try not to.

    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.

    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 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
