    I typically walk home from work

    but today a coworker gave me a ride home. I let myself in the front doors of my building, check my mail and walk down the hallway to the stairs to go up to my floor. As soon as I reached the stairs I went into automatic pilot. I walk up to my floor and into the hallway and...

    instead of taking out my office key, I took out my car key and clicked the open door button, strangely the office door did not open. But it made me laugh, so that's a good thing. :-)

    I studied in an all- girls school

    for 14 years (from the age of 4 to 17). And then I went to a women's college for 3 years (from the age of 18 to 21). That's 17 years with nothing but girls all around and I think that's quite an achievement !! lol! XD

    that is funny that happened a long time ago and laugh. I'll laugh out loud, too. But I don't care. If I fell down stairs and wasn't seriously hurt, I'd laugh so hard! And other things like that.

    that characterize me as a "dumb blonde" and it's amusing as ****. Laughing at yourself is not only humble, it's healthy. So laugh til you p*ss yourself because p*ssing is healthy, too.

    I love doing this, especially

    when I'm faced with an embarrassing situation. A genuine laugh at myself mitigate the negativity of it all. People find it immature but I believe it's being carefree. The same way some opt for cursing their bad luck, I enjoy having a laugh at the mess I brought myself into...

    I am of the firm belief

    that you make your own happiness and your own misery. Ideally there are situations and cases where our suffering can't always be taken with a smile, but in the moments where embarrassment or unexpected accidents happen... I love to laugh it off.
